Pretty sure stock is 17mm. Could be wrong doe, just from reading a little bit. I'm not real sure what is adjustable. They claim 32% stiffer then stock on the low setting and 65% on the higher setting. I think that'd suffice for what I want it for. I was getting the rear to rotate a bit as is with just adjusting tire pressures so I think with a stiffer RSB AND an alignment I'll be just fine.

Edit: here is link to said RSB

Hmm, I bet the CT RSB has two holes for mounting and one is considered "low setting" and one "high setting". Gonna have to research CT vs Progress, the price for CT is very attrative though, I think Progress is literally double

Only reason I'd go with CT is it being adjustable. I'd hate to get the progress and it be too much. At least I'd have the option for adjustment.

I'm with Scott on this one. Would hate to get too much too fast. 24mm seems like it'd go on a stiffer suspension car with sticky tires. Makes me wonder if the 22 is too much or just right.

Not much of an update, spring cleaning I guess.

My front seats were starting to look pretty gross. I don't think they've ever been pulled from the car in 7 years so today was the day. Let me tell you, these things weigh a ton. I guess I was used to EK seats LOL. I used diluted Woolite. 6:1 ratio with water. I was impressed by the results!

Here is the drivers seat before







and after





Passenger Seat After



The headrests were pretty gross too

Before



After



The disgusting water



I seriously had to change the water out like 10 times per seat. Overall they are 1000 times better looking. Next I'm gonna do the door cards and center armrest, they're both pretty grimy looking.

Yeah you mix the woolite with water, I did 3cups of water to 1/2 cup woolite. Put it in a spray bottle. I sprayed it all over the seats and scrubbed with microfiber towels. I used like 4-5 total so be prepared for that. And just changed the water when it got dirty. It takes awhile but it's worth it!

Nothing happening on the civic lately, I did finally get around to replacing my wife's car's rotors and pads. They were terrible. Most of the focus is on her car at the moment. Nothing has ever been "maintained" on this car apart from oil changes and tires and its just starting to fall apart a bit.

Ended up ordering all 4 new Raybestos rotors and Bosch pads from Rock Auto. Pretty impressed with their prices and shipping. Can't complain.





Also ended up giving her headlights a quick refresh.





Next up is new inner tie rods and an alignment for this old girl! I want to do spark plugs but I have to remove the whole intake manifold to get to half the plugs. Might just shop that one out. LOL! As much as I want to hate this KIA its never had any issues in 120k+ miles. Time to give it some love.

Rock auto is sweet. Did you use a 5% discount code on top? If not just google search it.
