Had these installed 2000 miles ago at parents friend shop. none of them knew what they were doing so I searched the forums to learn how to install them. Drove from Houston to Norfolk with no problems whatsoever until I arrived and noticed clunking of the front when I turned it right to the max. I removed the wheels and noticed the spring could still move and tighten the perch to 7.5" instead of the suggested 8" and now no more problems! Rides very smoothly through everything I have it at 10 rear 12 front stiffness. MADE IN JAPAN!

I have had this set on the car for years now. They have only gotten noisier and sloppier with age. From the day I installed them, the lock rings on 2 of the 4 coilovers never actually locked anything in place. They did drop the car and they did stiffen the ride/eliminate roll. Would I recommend them to someone else when there are lots of options out there? No.

Not So Bad
First thing i didnt like was it did not come with camber plates. I bought them not knowing that but that was my fault. I assume for the price they would have. Then I replaced the springs with Swift springs. I didnt like how those springs felt. These arent bad if you keep them on the streets.

good bt not great
i bought these to replace stock struts with neuspeeds. they ride good for a coilover car at a 1inch drop BUT THEY MAKE A LOUD CRINKLING SOUND WHEN TURNING THE WHEEL.. I HAVE FOUND NUMEROUS TEMPORARY SOLUTIONS BUT NOTHING THAT WORKS 100%.... if you want a racing coilover then these are for you, if you want something for your daily driver then these arent for u.

Form, Function and Price
On my pursuit to find the right coilover for my 03 RSX I came across alot of good things about the N+ series and Racing Spec Dampers. I decided that because I don't track my car often enough to get the full benifit of the Racing Spec Damper, so I went with N+, and I was glad that I did. For normal street driving it is a little stiffer, but when you get a chance to open it up on the back roads the rougher ride is much more worth it. I Installed them myself along with the SPC camber kit and took down to my local shop to get it aligned and they couldn't put it on there alignment rack (because it was to low) haha, so I had to take down to my performance shop which was alittle more pricey but they dialed it in perfect. Overall great product gives my car an aggressive stance and and I can bang corners like a camp and at the right price, Thank You Buddy Club for great products and CRSX for great pricing

If you don't want to go mad dumped then these are for you full dumped up front gives you about a 1 finger gap. The ride is not to stiff, I can know almost induce oversteer with these coils installed. If properly installed no clunking or wierd noises.

Very easy to install, ride quality was sacrificed but that comes with lowering any car even if they are coils. Grab the SPC camber kit also. ClubRSX FTW

I purchased the BC N+ Damper From ClubRsx, and received it just one week later. There is no comprimise with the BuddyClub N+ Damper, you literally cannot go wrong with price and performance. I would highly recommend them for the Occasional Weekend Racer. Or someone who enjoys some spirited driving while, remaning in contact with the road.

First of all clubrsx.com destroys the competition when it comes to low prices and fast FREE shipping. These coilovers are really comfortable and give the car a nice aggressive look. I have these paired with Buddy Club P1 Racing rear camber kit and Ingalls front camber kit. This damper kit has been the best investment i've ever made for my car.

Installed these on my 05 Base and dropped it about 1.25" in the front and 1.5" in the back. I used the SPC rear camber kit, and though I bought the front set too, the shop didn't end up using them. It looks great and isn't dropped too much that I have to worry about scraping everywhere I go. Garages and ramps can be tricky at times. Sometimes the exhaust pipe, since it hangs the lowest on the bottom of the car, gets a little scrape, but so far the front bumper hasn't taken a hit at all. Living in Seattle, the streets here are a bit unforgiving. The shop adjusted the damping to be on the softer side, but you can only go so soft while going lowered or else you risk bottoming out. The end result is definitely a much bumpier ride. But then on the straights, with my wheel hop now gone when slamming from first to second, and in the high speed turns, it's all worth it. =) Also, something I learned from the guys at my shop. Coilovers are only designed to last for about 5 years. Not sure how true that is, or how that varies from brand to brand, but that might be good to know before making a purchase.

Installation was not bad at all on my 03 RSX type S, and the results have been nothing short of amazing. Really changed the dynamics of the car aesthetically as well as performance wise. Cornering is a dream, and is by far my favorite mod to date.

Took me about 5 hours to install these and my Ingalls camber kit and align my car. I had access to both a lift and alignment rack. Installation is very straightforward, just make sure you follow the pre-installation instructions here in the suspension forum. Fitment was perfect for me, and the construction seemed to be very solid. I have the coilovers set at 15/15 for stiffness. The car feels so much more confident in turns and power is more easy transmitted to the ground, thus making the car faster in some cases. Overall I am very happy with these.

Awesome, wish i got these along timeago
these coilovers help me put all my power to the ground without wheel hop, i just spin instead now. it helps me grab better in the straight line as well as in the corners. cornering i feel more ocnfident and solid because there is no roll or floating feeling.

I bought these coilovers along with the SPC rear camber kit for my RSX Type S. The handling of the ride was dramatically increased as I can corner at faster speeds. I love these coilovers, they are not to stiff and are good for daily driving. Coils could go pretty low also!

I have had these for a few weeks now, super easy to adjust the dampening and over all a good ride. No complaints so far...I would and have recommended these coil overs.

Installed without any problems on my 2002 Type S. Ride is a dream. I have the stiffness set to 10/15. If you don't have these, you're missing out.

The dampers works very great but one problem with these dampers are that for the 05-06 rsx you will have to zip the abs brake line with the brake line and you can not just bolt back on place like the stock damper but for the 02-04 you don't have to. I have these on for my 06 rsx and thats the only problem I have with these dampers, so I rate it with four stars.

Great for daily spirited driving. A little bumpy but that's to be expected from a sport suspension. Very nice at the track, firm and pretty responsive. Gives good feedback on a road course. Being adjustable, it can be set fr street and track (front knob is on the bottom)

I have had mine for a year or more and I still LOVE them. I have never tracked my car. My car is strictly a street car. The ride is great and the car looks great. No complaints.
