Vistas finest 97' Integra LS -



#1
Picked up this APB 97' LS Sedan 5 speed Stock. 101k OG miles

Previous owners cut all the springs and destroyed the suspension and had it on these after market 16's. It's a clean title, small accident on passenger side doors. I picked it up from a marine off CL for $950.






So far I just...



Replaced oil pan and gasket
Changed oil and filter with a generic chevron 5-30 & Lucas oil treatment, and a Mobil 1 filter
Replaced PVC valve
Cleaned IACV
Changed spark plugs /w NGK iridium
Putting in NGK blue spark plug wires #8041
Transmission oil changed

Had the car inspected at SAE motorsports and compression tested came out all cylinders @ 183-187psi. Needs new ball joints, tie rods, bushings , struts are blown out, springs are cut.

Smogging the car and registering then taking care of the suspension so I can ride around legit. I will then start with my bolt ons I/H/E.

Car recently had a gates racing timing belt, water pump, cap and rotor replaced, new cam seal, new main relay @96k.

Car goes into shop on Thursday.

$1100 seems like way too much for the Koni/GC kit.

Suspension stuff is really easy to do. It's literally just take bolts off, put part on, put on bolts, tighten.

Buttttttt, depending on how your bolts are, it can become a PITA if you have to start cutting bolts or heating them up, etc.... Especially for a newbie.

But if you want to learn, it's a good spot to start learning.

thats how much the 'Honda Tech Kit' costs from ground control with tax and shipping.

See if they can throw in the ground control key/beer opener/koni adjuster. My buddy designed it.
Gotcha. I was thinking it was just the sleeves and Koni's.

This.

My rear struts were so f***ed that I ended up having to get new LCA's because the bolts that connect the struts were seized in place. No amount of heat/PB Blaster could get those f***ers out :rolf:

The koni beer keychain idk what its called or if they even make it anymore. They were making it when my buddy worked there. He also has a kit named after him lol.

yeah that would be cheaper i think like $800. but this comes with top hats.Idk if you can choose what springs come with it though.


The shop recommended I get rear camber kit and skunk 2 upper control arms? What you guys think do I need?

Technically you dont need any of them. Camber is not a high ware angle. You can adjust toe which is a crazy high ware angle. Only thing that happens with camber is your tires wear unevenly but i never had that problem when i drove my integra every day.
