FS: 2gn Eibach lowering springs on stock struts (OREGON)

I have the set already mounted on a set of good stock struts w/ 80k miles on them.

They are Eibachs pro-kits springs, ride nice and handle great.

I would like to sell them locally if possible first, but will ship if the don't sell soon.

You guys are funny, there are tons of Civics out there that could blow all 4 doors off a Neon w/ bolt ons. Hell a stock Civic Si (any year) has a solid second or more on the Neon in the 1/4 mile easy. Yeah, but you're not talking about R/Ts. Only the 01s and 07+ Sis are faster. Besides, SRT-4 > Civ...

205 north around (Vancouver to woodland)

Today there was a red 03+ SXT with some aftermarket black wheels and what appeared to be pillar pods. Any ways nice try, trying to keep up! I would just pull away 8 car length and then he would steadily come back.

I thought there might be a chance he is a member on here so..meh..lol

If your really planning on tracking screw the A/T, your girl will just have to learn.

Well the VSS is located on the passenger side of the diff you might need to check that. But first I would recomend jacking the front end up, so its unloaded and do a visual inspection. If it seems fine then go ahead and start it up and see if it still makes the same noises. You could also try turnin...

The important part is when the clutch is engaging or disengaging. It doesn't matter if your wide open throttle once you foot is off the clutch pedal. Just take it easy on the hard shifting and launches and you should be good!

If you have never drifted before, you have picked the wrong car. Short wheel base and 50/50 weight distribution make for a very touchy car. If you want a potential drift car there are planty of other cars other than 240's that you can drive that have more forgiving drifting characteristics. However ...

Its worth it just make sure you source the right transmission for cable or hydraulic. And a corresponding ECU for your car....If your car is NGC you will need a ECU reflash.
