I have used them on 3 different cars.

EF - D2 street
EG - D2 Rally asphalt with circuit springs in the front
Accord - D2 rally asphalt.

IMO, they are a very good product, my set on the accord is over 1 year old now and zero issues. The "Street spec" is soft IMO, its good for a daily driver or show car, but if you really want some fun "rally asphalt is the way to go"

Regards

Sure. If people are going to continue to ask vague questions I'll give vague answers.

I don't know what you're thinking, but posting nothing but dick-ish replies is not going to make you a mod, if that's what you're aiming for.

"If people are going to continue to ask vague questions I'll give vague answers."

How about you just don't answer at all.

In response to the OP, D2's are a Taiwanese shock and are made in the same factory as K-Sports... which are the same exact thing except for color (Their RS line, anyways). I recommend you check out Libertariat's coilover guide. While it may just be his personal opinion with not too many facts to back it up, he is pretty on-point with which coilovers you should be looking into.

You may also want to check out this page which has a wealth of knowledge on suspension. While the author is biased towards certain shocks, there is a lot of hard data included. http://farnorthracing.com/autocross_secrets.html

Pot calling kettle.
And I love how you go out of your way to make me aware of how you feel. What about the others that did the same as me? Nothing to say?
Not trying to be a mod. They offered though. Maybe when you grow up you can be just like me.

This thread is useless. This thread gets reproduced at least once a week. The people in them never list any specs or criteria that they need the suspension to fill. The people that start them NEVER bother to see if this question was ever asked before.

If you have a problem with a thread that gets "reproduced at least once a week," then ignore it. The fact that you're a post ***** is the only reason why you comment on these things. If you have nothing helpful to say, then don't say anything at all. The few times I have seen you post somewhat helpful information, you always have to include some kind of rude comment. You're not a mod, so quit acting like you're one.

Again. Pot calling kettle. Check your post history.
If you don't like what I say then report it. Simple.

I've had the same set of D2's since '08. No issues and no problems since first installed. Have auto-x'd and done track events with them and they performed great. Ride quality is great as I drive my Civic with them installed everyday. No problem hitting the random pot holes either, although i try my best to stay away from the teeth-jarring holes. My previous Civic was rear-ended and the strut was bent. Quick drive over to their warehouse and $100 later, good as new.
