Nope, you also have to buy other stuff.

This was my approach since i bought them surplus, a lot easier actually and cheaper. If you want something with about stock performance why not stay oem? You'll be paying an arm and a leg by going completely aftermarket and I doubt you would find an aftermarket kit that isn't race oriented.


In your case you can also try this

Source: I did the same on my EG Civic.

If you have more Civic questions, keep on asking chief. Im a die hard fan of the model.

i saw that on the first picture you have the oem brakes with the control arm, Would i have to also change that or do i only need the brakes?

Not really, you just need the brakes, reason why i also got the trailing arm with the brakes is for the ease of installation. All i did was disconnect the brake lines, dropped it and installed the new one.
