Fancy Footwork.

The modern-day Honda enthusiast is, without question, a pretty lucky guy. A few decades of trial and error by the industry’s “forefathers” have not only paved the way for separating right from wrong mechanically, but those years have also produced a massive influx of aftermarket options for the average consumer. While some are good and others subpar, the sheer number of choices presented to tuners can be somewhat overwhelming. Not unlike any other industry well versed in producing just as many loyal followers as dollars and cents, the import world has attracted its fair share of inferior quality. Poorly designed hard parts, poorly executed copies, and outright garbage wrapped in fancy attire continue to make a home in an otherwise highly developed community. As bad as it may seem, there is a bright side to all of the mischief in the form of industry standouts—like Eibach Springs.

Well known worldwide for high-performance suspension springs and related components, Eibach has a reach that goes much further than its massive Corona, California, facility. With claims staked on five separate continents and representation in over 80 countries, this is no fly-by-night operation. It has its hands in everything from mundane daily-driver-friendly springs to ultra high-performance F1 machinery. Typically one of the very first to offer spring kits for brand-new models, both foreign and domestic, it has often been praised for its manufacturing process being second to none.

Recently, Eibach completed R&D on its new double-adjustable Multi-Pro R2 coilover system for the wildly popular ’94–’01 Integra and ’92–’00 Civic chassis. We dropped by Eibach’s Corona facility to get a quick rundown on the materials it relies on and a breakdown of what its Multi-Pro setup consists of.

The Multi-Pro R2 installed on an ITR. The reservoirs can be mounted vertically or horizontally just about anywhere, though Eibach highly recommends that you keep them away from hot spots or moving parts to ensure trouble-free performance.
