Unhappy Best suspension setup for daily DC2? Help please!!!

So I bought my 98 integra about a year ago and it was already lowered on Skunk2 coilovers. They didn't ride too bad until I moved to Virginia Beach and it's almost impossible for me to drive here. The roads are horrible and I have to brake hardcore before a bump or else I slam into it. I have to go 15mph under on the highway bc it's so bad!

Seriously been thinking about switching to lowering springs and better shocks. I used to have a 95 3000gt that rode awesome on Eibach springs and KYB. I've heard Skunk2 was sh!t anyway. Need opinions from you guys and personal experiences. Thanks!

Eibach and kyb gr2 are just fine for daliy use. I have an integra set on my eh2 cx and they feel sporty without being very harsh. Those spring rates are for your heavier car so i imagine they would feel close to stock on them.

I heard Konis were best but I think they're a little out of my price range. Also don't wanna go too low bc I'm getting a JDM front end put on with a lip and don't want to scrape or be bouncing like it is now hah.

Alright people, keep on track. Say something about budget springs and cheap dampers or don't say anything at all.

Stop modifying cars if you can't do it well. Garbage suspensions put you and everyone else at risk.

At WORST, get the Progress CSII's. They are a proven setup on a budget, and they have been around for years. These are for a MODERATELY lowered car (no more than 2.5" max).

After that, Koni/GC with custom rates are a solid shot. You can find those setups with rates you choose for sub-$800 on HT.
