so im reading these articles and such from r&t...c&d etc etc. looks like the 8 has some room for suspension stiffening. for instance r&t mentioned that the 8 had more roll than the rx-7, which is fine, even if it has a stiffer chassis.
i'm curious if the potential for teeth shattering / hi, i'm a rolling chocolate milk commercial / the bolts-holding-my-renesis-together-are-coming-loose stiffness. so...maybe a bigger strut bar up front and sway bar in back? anyone have any experience usin a sway bar on rear multilink suspension or does that not even matter?
p.s. btw, im not aiming for super stiff, but im thinking '93 r1 stiffness is more me than supple / comfy ride.

That is the Tein SS or Super Street. It does not come with a helper spring. I got a good deal on a barely used set of Tein HA's with stock Honda upper pillow ball mounts for $1000 Cnd :D Can't wait to put them on.
Yes Teins are adjustable for height and dampening. My set will have spring rates of 671 front and 448 rear! I might have to drive around with a mouth guard.. :D
Tein's are the best but new you're looking at $2000+!!! Personally I think they're overkill...at least for me...I'd rather pick up a good set of springs and struts...springs ~$300 and struts ~$300-500.
$2000 US? I think that depends on which model of coilover and which car it's for? For the Prelude the Canadian HA price is about $2000 or about $1400 US.
Yes I do agree for most folks Teins are overkill but I do auto-x and do lapping days.
