I'm getting fair sick of the poor ride quality on my type R now, various knocks from the front shocks, rear shocks knocking now and seem to have developed a ratling tail gate too. :(

what mods can i do to improve this? I don't want to fit the eibach springs then the shocks end up failing. I'm thinking of Kw coilovers, can you get any bushes which will soften the ride a little?

id recommend eibach springs as they change the ride dramatically, however if your thinking of coilovers then do this. also if your running rages (not sure if you are) maybe you could consider dropping to 18's and having some slightly fatter tires aswel. with oem springs and 19" rages you'll feel every bump. bush-wise im unsure

For the rattle on the tailgate adjust the rubber tailgate stops and if the shelf rattles I placed some rubber pipe in the shelf stops on the hatch to make this a tighter fit and remove the rattle. Best thing to soften the ride will be slightly thicker tyre wall (45 or 50) and maybe a tyre with a softer tyre wall but this will also effect the sharp handling.
