Break It Down Cost: Fast Brakes disc upgrade and conversion kit $1300; SPC suspension arms $893.85; Super Pro bushings $288; Suspension Techniques sway bars $375; TEIN SS coilovers $1,415

Pros: Wheels and being lowered, the only two things mandatory for any car build.

Cons: It's still too high Jonny. Slam your ish already!

Install Difficulty: Medium; most everything can be done at home and with a moderate tool supply. TIME: Set aside a day for each install. Do not attempt to install all of these parts in one day.

Verdict: The best things you can do to an old car are new suspension and old school kicks.

In this phase of our EF project, we lower the car the right way. And we don't leave anything out. From coilovers, to sway bars, to bushings. When we're done, the car will brake, handle and ride; better and faster than Jonny will ever put to use, and of course better than it had coming out of the showroom at Honda. We even restore two sets of classic rims for the JDM master.
