F&F type 1s are the best bang for the buck, if you just put springs on stock shocks, you'll regret it eventually.
Idk how much springs are but im guessing around 200-250ish? then to buy shocks so your comfertable is another 200ish? (im just guessing here btw) save up a little more and you can get type 1s, there way worth it.

and your picture of the white wing reminds me of when I first got my wing I had a white front end, red body and a white wing. lol.

before you choose, make sure you research both springs. i get em mixed up, but i know either the eibachs or tein are not a staggered drop, and because the way our fenders are cut in the front, it makes the front look a tiny bit higher than the back after the drop.
That is the Eibachs that are not staggered. The Tein S-Techs say they are designed to work with oem factory struts so the ride will still be decent.

Well I adjusted my lip as it was looking higher compared to pics I was looking at. THen I remembered in the ITR lip insallation thread someone said it was supposed to be 2 5/8 from top of lip to split in bumper. So i moved it down and made sure its even all the way across and much better. Also took some pics in the sun seeing I dont get to take pics in the afternoon time much lol. I admit I'm obsessed with taking pics of my cars, always have been haha.

Well guys I havnt had internet at the house in a few months so I havnt been able to update anything. Ive since painted the spoiler finally. I wish I could say I have had more done but I'm a month away from my daughter coming into the world and money is tight. Im happy though as it sits for now because everything matches lol. The only things I would like to do at this point is my grey Rota Spec R's 16" ITR replicas and a very slight drop since this will be my DD still with both my children. If anyone with kids out there have any awesome suggestions on some cool car seats let me know. My 4 year old is in a booster now and I know there are some tuner style carseats for kids out there. Let me know what you have! Heres the most recent pics of the teg....

Everywhere I have seen them they dont mention centercaps at all. And I dont know if the measurements are the same as actual oem centercaps so I dont know if you can just buy oem ones or what. Some sites show them with centercaps on them and some dont. If you find them let me know.

Those "tuner" kids seats have terrible ratings... Get yourself a rear facing graco to match the interior... Make sure the graco you get is a rear facing only with a base... Anything that's 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 is god awfull heavy ... Graco rear facing w your kid in it is very light and the handles are smooth enough for your significant other to carry. the base is like a quick release steering wheel press and lift or pop right back in

If you need specific model recommendations pm me

Looking good Tim; The Teggy is looking great with the matched itr wing...
Congrats on the baby!
At times I wish i had 4 dr, to get my two girls in the back comfortably.
It's gonna look sweet with the itr replica wheels; I hope you have security for it, cause it looks like it sleeps outdoors. Keep it safe man!!

Well Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I wasnt expecting many for as simple as the car is. I like it clean and stock looking. You cant go wrong with Factory Type R parts and low key improvements. Yes it sleeps outdoors but I live in a small town with one stop light lol. Im the only honda that has anything done to it so Im not too worried at the moment but security is on my mind no doubt. Thanks for the car seat reccomendations, I will definately look into that. As for the black interior If I didnt have a kid coming in a month my tax check next week would be interior swap but I will keep you in mind if I venture to it. Thanks again guys for the comments, makes me truly know Im heading in the right direction for the car. I cant get online much but if anyone comes across anyone selling those ITR replica wheels in grey or white let me know. Send me an email if ya can because I will get that faster. [email protected]. Seeya with the next update!

Tim, if you wanting a drop, I got H&R springs for about 170-220 shipped, and you can get a decent pair of shocks like tokico's or something for close to the same, or Koni yellows for about 600 for all 4(at least that's what I remember paying for mine)

Btw, this is Brent from the local area.

Yeah Brent. I cant decide if I should just spend a bit more for full coilovers or just replace the struts because the driver side is sagging enough to notice just by looking at it and my front driverside strut makes the popping sound so I know its shot. I only am getting $1500 back from taxes and need to do the timing belt, water pump, and tune up which will be around $300 in just parts and I only work part time so this money is gonna have to stretch as far as possible. Gotta make this as reliable as possible since its our only car. It sucks but unless its absolutely needed I cant spend any money on the car. the way I see it though is just to replace the one shock is stupid as I know atleast both drivers side are done...but then might as well do 4. cost for 4 is around $150 and I dont know how close to oem they will be. spend a little more and i may as well drop it too with new springs and have all new suspension. By that point another hundred and I could have a quality full bodied coilover kit.... Decisions decisons lol.

If you just replace the shocks, get adjustable tokico's or koni yellows. Even with my springs I can get a soft as or softer than stock feel just with the yellows. If you go everything, why not price ground control top hats+ shocks vs coils? I'd also shy away from springs. Get something that's adjustable. I love my height, but I want a flat drop, not the aggressive stance I have, but I can't do anything about it now.

Well I bit the bullet. I just ordered and paid for a set of new FF Type 1 coil overs, timing belt and water pump set, valve cover set, plugs, wires, cap and rotor oem parts for tune up. I have a whopping 246,000 miles on it. Also ordered a 55 watt HID kit in 4300k to replace my 35 watt 6000k kit. So the car is getting some love in about a week :) I'll have pics when everything arrives.
