Sup twinn! EVIL twinn :tup:

hey it looks like your car is stock height. If you EVER upgrade to coilovers or whatever, PLEASE sell me those stock springs!! My car came with Tanabe's and they are too low for the roads around here, even though they look and feel pretty good.

I've been looking for the stock JDM springs and no one has them.

anyway nice car!

[EDIT] I found some Type R springs. thanks NEwayz

also in the future plans, rear 2-pot brakes. I do have the vented rear discs though, that was an upgrade the PO did.

I always thought these cars came with the rear 2-pots to match the fronts, but maybe in 99 it was just the Type RA or something.


although on the tail of the dragon the brakes felt really good. it was my first time on there in a car with no ABS.
