Project Civic SI Progress Suspension
By Aaron LaBeau
When searching for a Civic SI suspension we wanted to be sure this was an "upgrade" we could live with every day. Weekend garage queens and purpose built track cars are fun for the occasional poke but for daily driven street cars, comfort trumps performance. Any upgrade in performance would therefore have to be a bit of a doppelganger; refined for the commute but hard-edged enough not to roll over in the corners.

For a long time this journalist has lusted after having a set of expensive three piece wheels with an aggressive and deep polished lip. Unfortunately, the narrow offset and extra wide wheel necessary for this look can be problematic on FWD cars for clearance with both the suspension and fenders.

I'm basically starting over with this Honda project discovering which sites keep the opinion at a minimum and can engage in thoughtful discussion about automotive aftermarket performance. I've seen bench-racing posts, YouTube video's with Civic SI's winning or losing street races and lots of seat of the pants testing. Who's got the most accurate butt dyno?

When it came time to succumb to the modifying bug with the Civic SI (FA5) I realized in modifying cars we are doing something reflective of ourselves. One of the best parts about modifying a car is making it yours. If you've been reading our publication for a while you know we favor racecar parts and function over stanced out showcars. But, there's that line you cross when your street car loses the comfort and convenience in exchange for that performance that makes your car so different from every other one out there.
