LOL! they were VIP Modulars VR11, white face, 24k Hardware, and chrome lip. I sold them too because i test fitted with tires and there was no way i can do the setup i want on 20's without have to go over with oversized fenders. i have to go with 19's.

but yeah still in the search for rare wheels again. i like to be unique. and since everyone in their civic and had modulars at Import Alliance i said EFFFFF That! SOLD! lol

well I sold them before I can go white face. they were just silver

Alright, so its been a minute since I've worked on my GS so I decided to post a review on an item that I found quit interesting after the install.

I was experiencing quite uncomfortable steering around corners during regular driving due to the wobble at low speeds so I figured I would order and try out FIGS Engineering's polyurethane lower control arm bushings and I must say I am hella happy with this purchase. its definitely something I should've bought at the same time I purchased my camber kits and springs.


Click the image to open in full size.


after the installation I drove around to see what the outcome was and I will say this with confidence that it has dramatically decreased the vibrations and wobble at low speeds, Significantly increased response to steering (as in when you need to avoid potholes =) ), definitely improves the wobble at braking, and definitely solves a weird lean around a corner. I don't want to say that the wobble is completely gone however, it is very faint and not noticeable to another driver like before. and when I mean faint I mean very very very faint.

so to those who do not have these bushings yet I suggest you try them if you have the wobble. im on Tanabe DF210 springs incase u ask.

Nice build!

I think it's normal to feel a wobble in an AWD 3GS, I feel a slight vibration in our car and the suspension is totally stock!.

The AVS Visors look great!
