Default Another frame locks review!

Just want to send my praise out for this product for anyone who would be interested. At the moment they only have applications for 96-00 Civics..

"When I first read about the frame locks, I was very excited at the implications they had for my car. Although I shared some of the initial skepticism other people had, I very much hoped that this product could solve my suspension woes. Riding on Ground controls and KYB AGX (set to the softest possible setting) and 45 series tires with 16" rotas, my ride quality was very poor. I don't know why, but even with this "soft" configuration hitting cracks on the road and any sort of train tracks and ripples was absolute HELL! It had gotten to the point where my car was becoming a chore to drive. Despite spending all this money to make my car better.

Knowing a great innovation when I see it, I decided to give the guys at Korbach a chance. I set up a group buy to get some other Civic owners in my area a chance to try out this great product as well. First off, the guys at Korbach treated me VERY well with our arrangements to ship to Canada. Being their first Canadian customers, they were very eager to make sure we were taken care off and everything was done as fairly and honestly as possible. I'm very impressed. Our kits came about 4 business days after we all had our order in! Thats super quick as far as i'm concerned.

Installation was straight forward and the ease of installation was excellent. Serious thought was put into the product, and its assembled with an easy install in mind. Break away pilot hole spots, step by step instructions with pictures along the way, even the drill bits to complete the job. These guys went over and beyond what normal companies usually do with half assed or incomplete kits..

Lets cut to the chase. Driving my car is fun again! Although there still are some issues with my suspension (i'm replacing my configuration next spring), ride quality is at least two times better than before. I don't even notice the small cracks that would normally have made my car lose its footing, and make a loud thump. Although I still go very slow over train tracks, Its not always a necessity. Basically every crack out there is half as bad as it used to be. A good comparison to the effect of the frame locks installed is moving from a low profile tire to a more stock setting, like 195/65/14. Thats what it feels like without giving up the reason you got low profile tires in the first place!

Turning response is much more natural, no lag from the time I turn the steering wheel to the time the wheels decides to turn. Handling is better too, the car is just more eager to perform. All in all I am very happy with the product, and I'm eager for Korbach's next innovations. If I ever get another civic, these frame locks will be the #1 upgrade I do. "
