Yeah probably GE. Its been a while since I looked into it so I cant recall. In general its hard for me to buy into a product that a company doesnt directly support the application of. Ive seen several cases in which people seem quite happy with their koni oranges on a GK5. I personally have yellows on another car I own and love them, I just have trouble spending the money on something If i know the company wont support. Would love to see koni produce a yellow or orange designed specifically for the GK5 but being that we are 5 years into this chassis Im not sure thats going to happen if it hasnt already?

Thank you for your input evilchargerfan

Would consider for sure, OEM dampening is real good so If it was similar to that Id be very interested.

PN = GSB80-91AS2

Google Shopping = $529
Ebay = $577.36 (if 15% coupon pops up, $490.76)

I 2nd the Tein's riding super comfy. My experience is with a GE but it rode near stock IMO. If you want to go super low and they make the Teins with the adjustable sleeve for the GK I would recommend spending the extra.

Great looking Fit and S2000 by the way.

Good to know, definitely looking for somebody local who has teins so I can experience the ride quality. Please anyone hit me up if your around the LA/ San Bernardino area and got teins.
On a side note, RIP USDM ? Sold for an s2000, or is it another troll? He hooked me up with some yellow headlight film a while back but I wasnt able to get enough out of it to fit both lenses so I ordered some precut film from Lamin-x. Will see how it turns out.

Dude, I just saw this! Sorry there wasn't enough film for both lenses.

You already know this because of the Facebook group, but I have a GE8 now!

Myself and USDM in this first one.

























Wish I had more things of interest to show off but this is sort it for 2018. Im right around 25k miles and a lot of those have been spent now on eibach springs with OEM absorbers. My initial impression was that this setup was tolerable enough, but far from ideal. The same is true today, this setup is under dampened. Its fairly unremarkable on smooth roads, however, on less fortunate roads the ride can be extremely jarring. I am interested in improving or replacing my setup if I can find a solution that doesnt break the bank and provides a decent ride quality while maintaining its current ride height.

I havent really made the time to research it myself, but if you have please drop me a comment or DM with specifics on what youve found.

Bro your gk looks so dope! it's the same color as mine. I've been looking for the best wheel and tire combo for awhile now.. The enkei rpf1s are perfect for this car. Thanks for posting up the pics. I'm getting the black ones

P.s I've had my gk for almost 5 years now.

Quick question! for your RPF1 (16x7 +43) do you require spacers?
I am planning to do a similar set up to yours but at the moment I only have the wheels. Was wondering if I would need spacers for my stock suspension (atm).
Planning to get coils in the near future too.

No spacers are required to clear the calipers or drums with these wheels.
