Watch out for the big rear trailing arm bushings. The stock rubber ones allow the arm to pivot, and not just rotate. With polyurethane, it cannot twist the way it is supposed to causing binding. Your best bet is to replace this one with new stock rubber ones. Finding the stock ones can be very tricky because honda doesn't sell them seperatly, but I have seen a place on the internet that does. Mugen sells harder "rubber" bushings, but of course they are expensive. I have read several threads about how the polyurethane made the rear end of civic/integras very unpredictable when hitting bumps. As for the rest of the set, I have heard great things about handling.

This link will provide you with all the info you need regarding bushings(you may need to make a profile and password)...

:arrow: http://www.theoldone.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=12644

These guys have been racing pro stock, Top Fuel, Cart, and Indy for 30 or more years (recently turned honda), and I have been reading their posts and discussions for years. Also the people posting on this forum know what they are talking about, and have the funds to try different things. If you don't have a pass word to their forum, GET ONE. I promise you won't regret it...
