Eibach sport kit springs, KYB AGX 5way adjustable shocks, Suspention technics antiroll-bars. Is this a decent set up or are there other pieces I should try? AutoX and road race is going to be my fortay.

Hahaha...if it is the Eibach Prokits...good choice...if it is the Sportline's...hope nothing on your car scrapes when you are that low...IMHO it's too low of a drop. KYB AGX's are good...good choice there for the money. ST sway bars...why not Whiteline's...do they make them for your S13? If so...I'd go w/them...in their famous words:

"Our bars stay harder longer"

Progressive springs aren't the best for handling. You may want to consider Whiteline or Suspension Techniques springs, they are both linear rate springs.

KYB AGX shocks are 4-way adjustable in front, and 8-way in the rear. I'm not sure where you got 5-way, I've never heard of a 5-way adjustable shock. KYB AGX are only available if you have an S13.

As for the sway bars, you could check either Whiteline or Suspension Techniques.

But then again, your first couple of years it won't matter anyways. Improving the driver will make much more different in autox and track events than improving the car.

And for springs...I'd get a linear rate springs for Road Racing- The Eibachs are progressive. ST makes a good linear spring for the S13.

Jim<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]Do you mean the other way around? Are the Sportlines stiffer? I know they're too low for their spring rate, but I thought that the Pro-Kits had a higher spring rate.
