Thanks, car was passed down by my father who was the second owner, he got it with 30, 000 k, now I currently own it with 180 k. Car was stored every winter and greased like crazy. Got 3 tiny pin like spots of rust (2) on hood and (1) on door, besides the surface rust on the steel frame on the rear

Unfortunately I think the car was used to one person in it all summer round then stored, that once it got to me, my wife and two kids it feels like the suspension is shot. Although I would love to keep it as a summer vehicle, this is our only car. Question is;

What should I do in the replacing either with oem or some sort of sportier all year round good suspension for Canadian winters?

I'd recommend skunk2 sports series shocks and lowering springs. It's not a coil over kit for race cars or anything, just a sportier ride with a little lower aggressive stance. Progressive rate springs that are softer, until you push the limits and then they get firm. I've never owned this setup, but know people that have and was very impressed. Plus the price isn't bad for this setup, probably cheaper then even most after market "OEM" replacements you'd buy thru a garage, and definitely cheaper then Honda parts. I have been using their other suspension parts on my cars for years and never had a problem due to canadian weather.

Thanks for the advice. I'll surely be looking into these today!

I don't think such a thing exists. I'd say maybe the old classic car meets on saturdays at the canadian tire on the queensway and 427 but I'm pretty sure its guys from that meet that show up at all the "JDM" meets and act like morons until the cops show up and say "Hey man nice Camaro, the rest of you line up and get ready to have your exhaust checked"
