AMR Engineering Coilovers

For anybody that knows who AMR is they have released there 10th gen coilover system. I cant even explain how great AMR is. It's a system you need to install and drive with to understand what you are getting and paying for. Since there induction over 9 years ago they have never had a blown damper come back and after owning 2 previous sets on a 91 civic and a rsx I will be purchasing soon with camber plates. As all there coilovers they are built to order according to your wants and needs and various spring rates you can choose from hyperco springs are standard or you can upgrade to Swift springs. Full custom and built in USA

Those look sweet. After adding a RSB I am pretty happy with the daily driver mine is.

I have nothing but good things to say about AMR as well.
I installed my AMR coilovers with Swift springs on my 2016 Accord touring coupe at 65K miles and they have only exceeded the stock ride comfort of my car.
I dropped my car about 1.5-2" all around and they have extremely comfortable. The 8 way damping makes a huge difference with each click, I am running 3/8 in the front and 4/8 in the rear.
Initially I was concerned about the "special" touring dampers my car was equipped with, but I have already junked those parts and do not plan on going back.

Anyone that owns a 10th gen touring might require an ADS bypass module or it could trip the sensor.

So 6 month review of the k-Sports: mediocre/poor.

Pros:
great adjustability in ride height. Front camber adjustment ok.

Cons:
No way to adjust toe with camber. The more aggressive the camber the more the toe goes inwards. Creates horrible high speed steering issues.
Front sway bar will rub on control arm if too low.
Front Dampeners started leaking about 5 months in.
Toe/camber problem leads to tire wear issues. Expect a set of tires to last 6 months tops. Wear will be uneven side to side. Rotation not possible.
Rear camber kit a must. Toe is also bad in rear, not much adjustment possible.

I’ve reverted back to stock, two different shops I went to couldn’t get the toe issues fixed without putting the camber back to 0/-.5.

Wow thanks for the insight. I will stay away. Are you going for another set of coilovers from another company? Interested to see what works well with our cars.
