Stiff springs for K swapped EM2?

Hi All,

Im looking for recommendations on stiff springs for a K20A swapped EM2. I have the stock EM2 springs on tokico blues, and feel like the stock springs are really not stiff enough.

Also aftermarket springs for EM2s don't look very stiff.

I read that you can use RSX springs on the EM2 struts? I know RSX springs are much stiffer.

I'm not necessarily interested in lowering the car since it will be driven in the snow a lot of the time, but I would like stiff springs with less bounce, that can hold around turns and bumps (I like stiffness like a 2000 civic Si suspension).

Anyways recommendations are greatly appreciated.

The sway bars do seem pretty weak on EM2s. Do you have any recommendations on how to stiffen the suspension for turns?


Also now that I have thought about it more, the sway bar in the front is from an RSX base model, and the one in the back is stock.

I would like the car to not ''bounce/rock' side to side' when going over bumps while taking turns at higher speeds.

Any input is suggested.
In case anyone is interested. I have been working on my EM2 off and on, and I came across this thread in the 7th gen civic forums:

The thread details compatibility between em2, dc5, and ep3 suspensions.

So I ended up grabbing an 05-06 rear sway bar on eBay for $50 and bolting it on, the suspension is much stiffer over bumps. Also ended up grabbing some front and rear strut tower bars, and a lower tie bar. All those things combined made a pretty significant difference.:new_slayer:
