    Coil-Over Kits

    So far only two both from TEIN

    First Part # GSHCO-1UAS2
    Street Basis Coilover........The Street Basis damper is the evolution of the popular BASIC coilover. Developed to provide a sporty ride feeling and aggressive stance. The shortened shell case design provides optimum damper stroke at lower than standard vehicle ride height. Vehicle ride height is adjustable via the ZT coated threaded sleeve. Updated internal components and external coatings increase durability and product life. Street Basis dampers are great for daily driving and spirited driving for all types of drivers.

    - Made in Japan under strict quality control standards and developed by highly trained suspension engineers.
    - Steel Construction
    - Twin Tube internal construction
    - Larger piston diameter for strut type front and rear (22mm)
    - Ride Height adjustable via spring seat
    - Powder coated damper body
    - Non-welded ZT coated Adjustment Tube
    - Full-Length Dust Boots
    - 1-piece Aluminum Spring Seat with Delrin Thrust Washer
    - Available for Overhaul
    - 1-year Manufacturers Defect Warranty

    ZT Corrosion Resistant Coating
    Newly developed ZT coating for improved durability and hassle-free ride height adjustment. TEIN developed this coating in-house after stringent test and analysis procedures. Their engineers tested different coats, application methods, cleaning processes, etc… in their own brine salt water testing machine which simulates heavy solvents/ road salts used in cold weather climates.

    Non-welded Adjustment Tube
    Slip-fit threaded adjustment tube. Allows for damper body and threaded sleeve to be thoroughly coated for rust/ corrosion protection. The slip-fit allows a more thorough coating on the threaded section as well as powder coated damper body.

    Revised Spring Seat and Thrust WasherRevised Aluminum Spring Seat and Delrin Thrust Washer are light weight and durable. This combination allows for smooth ride height adjustment. The new spring seats have a larger contact surface area and eliminate the need for a rubber spring seat.

    Are these specifically for the ILX or are they coilovers made for the 9th generation civic that can also fit the ILX?
