H&R Sport springs installed on 2016 Touring sedan

Got the springs earlier in the week and had a guy I know installed them for me that has done work before on my other cars.
I honestly loved the way it looks now. It's as if it should come like this from the factory. The ride to me doesn't feel that much different from stock and the ride feels great. I did come from a super stiff S2000 suspension, so this is like heaven in comfort compared to that. He didn't cut the bump stops and haven't had any issues yet in 2 days. Highly recommend these if anyone was debating on getting them. Got them from tirerack.com
What do ya think?

That looks great! My only concern with aftermarket springs on OEM shocks is the premature wear that it puts on the OEM shocks. Is there any particular reason why people are not pairing these springs with aftermarket shocks?

The drop is perfect, very nice. For your rsx and s2000 how many miles on the eibachs paired with OEM shocks and how many years did it last?

Well my car is like 3 weeks old almost 4 so my shocks still have a while before they go. This is the reason I went springs first to, to see how long shocks last before I go for some decent coilovers. But actually on my Rsx-s and s2000 I never changed the shocks and they lasted till I got rid of the cars. Those had Eibachs though if it matters. So whenever I see the shocks go, I'll get get coilovers.

The 02 Rsx had them installed 2 months after I got it that year. Had pro kit first and wasn't low enough, then got the sport line week later. It was totaled in 08 and never changed shocks. Car had 90k+ miles. The 2005 s2000 I bought in 08 with 24k miles on it. Changed to pro kit that same year. Till this date the shocks were still good with 136k when I traded it in. Let's see how long this accord hangs with them

Looks great! After having bilstein coilovers on my Focus ST, I can say I'll never put coilovers on anything ever again. I didn't even have it that low and it rode pretty stiff. It wasn't really that bad compared to some, but a little too much for my 100mile a day commute.

When I do get coilovers, I'll prob go the Tein way with adjustability on height and damping. That's a year or 2+ from now though. This will do for now. I really love the look!

Looks great! Is there a reason why you went with these over the Eibachs? I'm assuming it's because these offer a bit lower of a drop?

As far as I can see, price is nearly the same plus/minus a few bucks.

Yes, this is exactly why I went this route. I have been using embark on prior cars but the drop on the accord was not even 1" and I think I wouldn't have been happy with it. So as these were installed it was exactly the drop I wanted and glad I went this route. Plus I saw pictures and nothing but good comments also from members here and sure enough they were right!

Looks good.

The drop specs on the Eibach ProKit for the V6 is 1.3" front/rear.I've installed the H&R's on other vehicles but it always bothered me that they don't list any spring rate specifications.I've read a lot of posts hear about the ride not being very good with the H&R's(too soft for a lowering spring) so this time around I went with the Eibachs and the drop was exactly as advertised,1.3" F/R and the ride is firm but compliant,just as I would describe the stock ride.

Approaching 2 years(about 20k) with the lowering springs and the factory struts are still going strong(fingers crossed).

You have any pics? Weird based on tireracks page, the drop is different from what you state.

I wanted the lowest possible drop.

Those specs on Tire Rack are for 4 cyl. applications.

V6 part # 4089.140
I4 part # 4090.140

What is the rated drop for the H&R,I can't recall off hand?
Not that it matters,I don't think you can go wrong with either choice.

Edit: I see now that the H&R are 1.2 F and 1.3 R.
The Eibachs are 1.3 front and rear so the difference is negligible between the two.

Tein coilovers are really comfortable. I had them on an '07 accord and my friend has them on his '13. They ride better than stock if you ask me.

OLdManriver Do you see any camber change with that drop? Or I guess either of you ki11abee (since drop is about the same) I'm wanting to lower my Accord with Eibach Pro kit as well but I don't want to deal with camber issues. did you buy anything separate to correct camber issues or you haven't had any period? thanks in advance. I know drop is minimal at only 1.3
