Your springs should not affect the dampening system at all.
"Had H&R OE springs (0.75" drop f & r) on for about 4,000 miles. Just sold them because I missed the touring dampened suspension."

Did wearing the H&R springs on the touring cause the dampening system to shut off?

For folks not running camber kits in the rear, what are your camber specs?

Seems some are running camber kits and some are not. Seeing specs would help as many have different opinions on what camber is acceptable.

Disclosure: I am in no way affiliated with xxxxxxx. I am personally subscribed to their email subscription for the 18+ accord and I'm just spreading the news of TEIN suspension becoming available.



Street Basis Z = GSHL0-8UAS2

Street Advance Z = GSHL0-9UAS3

Flex Z = VSHL0-CUAS4


So with some experience with TEIN suspension on previous platforms (2004-2008 Acura TL's), they usually ride pretty well (sometimes a little too soft, but that could be user error). TEIN has different coilover set ups with/without dampening and with/without full shock body height adjustability. I may end up going with the Street Advance Z or the Flex Z as they both have adjustable dampening, with the only difference is full body height adjustment on the Flex Z for anyone that is looking to slam their car...

Looking forward to see some of these on the 10th gens and getting some reviews. I may end up picking some up soon if I decide to postpone my career change.

Hello all,
I'm looking at this BC-A-135-BR. BC Racing BR Coilover Kit for the 2018 Accord. From the factory it includes 6k/6k springs, however, I drive the 2.0T model, so would the heavier engine call for a higher spring rate on the front?
I don't want the car to ride too harsh but I don't want to overload the springs either. Maybe a 7k or 8k for the front?

Glad to see your post b/c looking for a spring that might work with the touring: : When you had the h&r's on they caused the damping to switch off or something else? Also wondering how (rough?) the ride was when you had the springs on. Thx
I am wondering the same thing.. it doesn't make any sense. I am curious what the ride quality is like; in normal and in sports mode. I have a touring and have been on the fence about getting lowering springs.

Had H&R OE springs (0.75" drop f & r) on for about 4,000 miles. Just sold them because I missed the touring dampened suspension. Did install and removal myself. 4 hours each way.
Can you elaborate on this comment? what do you mean you miss the touring dampened suspension.

Sure can. I actually just lowered on Eibach and I love them. But, to answer your question...I have the touring model. The touring has adaptive suspension modules on the shocks themselves. This is the only reason I have kicked them already for Bilsteins. But, it seemed as though the ride was made more rough because the adaptive suspension was trying to work on top of an already stiffer sping. In a sense, a double stiff suspension. My buddy put the H&R OEs on his sport and the thing rode great. I rode in it. In large part, that's how I knew I didn't like them on the touring. I'd recommend you go with the Tein H series or Eibach pro-series if you want to keep the touring feel and still get your performance gains in the corners.

I figured it had something to do with the ride being too harsh. However, that completely different than stating that the adaptive suspension was shut off.

Looks like stock height.

I am also interested in these. I've heard great things about them, especially when it comes to maintaining the comfort of the ride but they're a little too pricey for me to experiment with.

Hey all, I'm curious to see if anyone here has installed the new eibach sport springs? I want to do it myself but I'm a little worried about the fitment with my current wheels.

Feel free to chime in below.

I have my ole girl dropped on D2 lowering springs. 2" drop all the way around. I have 20mm spacers all around as well. Have had this set up a few weeks now. I don't bottom out, or say I haven't yet.. I don't rub or have my fenders rolled. I love the ride so far. Not overly bouncy, and not noisy either.

Forgot to add. I did get an alignment to get as close to factory specs as possible. The front was good within the range all green. My rears however I do have a bit of camber -1.7 right and -1.5 on the left, but the toe was in the green. I may up buying the camber kit for the rear when I get rims, but for now I like the look. Its not too crazy looking

Apologies if this has been asked before or a million times...I have a 19 touring and am looking for either springs or a coilover system under 1000 BUT am too scared to buy anything because the touring has the adaptive dampers and I do not want to deal with throwing a light. No descriptions say they will or will not work with the adaptive suspension. Can I please get some suggestions on options that work with the adaptive system?

It's like right at the top of this subforum, man. 10th Gen Accord Suspension: list of available aftermarket lowering springs, shocks, coilovers
