Go sc suspension. Majestic honda has all four shock assembly's. Just bolt right in and order eibach front and rear camber kit. Next get an alignment and your good to go. About 1,000.00 for everything.

well if you call it 4WD you want up if you call it AWD you want down :P

if you want down you want better handling and suspension. if you want up you want the lift kit that spaces your struts like 3" from the mounts.


4wd would seem to have more issues with up then down

im planning on doing the SC Suspension upgrade as well. Is the aftermarket camber bolt required when installing the new suspension? Could you just use the original ones?

I used the camber bolt and the rear camber kit. Both from in galls.

Otherwise u will not get into factory specs.

I've had the sc suspension on my element for 20,000miles and I love it.

Also threw on an st suspension rear sway bar and some Nissan altima ser forged 18" wheels and the ride is insane!!!
