Yeah I'm expecting now loss in comfort but with the ability to go lower. This is what I have heard from others running the previous Meister setup on Lexus's.Will be interesting to hear how the Meister's work on your steed. Bravo for taking the plunge.
Yep fronts went well mate, no issues!Wh00t, that's a big package
Well done getting the rears installed and fingers crossed the fronts go on tomorrow. Meanwhile, here on the Belgian cobbles...I'm considering taking my coilies off :facepalm:
Blimey mate, that boot spoiler will look flippin' epic with the amount of work you'll be putting in. You're still full on with the details, regardless of the effort involved
Great info, to be honest its impressively comfortable as it is, I'm not great with this sort of thing end up not being able to feel any difference to how it was before and end up going back to where I started lolI'm running 10mm preload which seems to soften the springs a tad but at the expensive of travel. Every now and again I get a reet good whomp through the fronts. Cyberspeed reckon a harder spring without preload helps, so I will try them and maybe fiddle with preload but in smaller amounts.
The hard spring/shock mounts transmit alot of road noise and bumps into the cabin. Which gets tiring on long journey's. I have removed most of the Polybushes now too, in an effort to improve comfort. It's helped but is still embarrassing sometimes.
The coilies give great cornering but for a daily, over rough roads they aren't going a good job at the moment.
The damping is quite fine on my dampers, click back from full hard (as per manual) and initially go 90% towards soft. Around 20-25 clicks here, out of 32. Once they bed in, then click 3 towards hard on repeat your daily commute over known roads. Repeat until your teeth fall out(!) and then back off a click or two to find the sweet spot.
I'm not convinced preload works too well as it limits travel but if you need to then try adding a bit. We have up to 20mm available on the Civic, I wonder if yours are the same?
Yeah I will stick it say 10 click from soft on the front tomorrow and see if it feels any less comfortable and go from there.Full soft maybe a bit too bouncy on certain roads, you really need to drive over lots of different roads.
Some damping is good, so a few off soft should tame the dampers.
Full soft may be a bit wallow in the corners too, especially if you have softish/comfy springs.
Have a play every few hundred miles 😋 If you tweak too often then you may not notice the differences. If you set and drive for a while then any changes are more noticeable, I find.
