I have the Accord Sport 1.5t... if I go with the H&R sport, will the front drop of 1.4" be the same as the 2.0? I believe the 2.0 engine is a bit heavier. Thanks.Hey guys.. sorry haven’t been on in a long time. So I have had the H&R Springs on for a while.. man they are great. They went from prototype to actual production Sorings so far no sag after months of having them on. I did notice though the production springs dropped the rear down just a little more. I would say they are 1.3F/1.4R I have to get a tape measure to find out exactly.
Rides smooth, with no rubbing on the 20” wheels. I know people are talking more about the eibachs. When I lived in California, those were so great. Now living up in the PNW, H&R seem to rule the roost up here.
I can say this much, don’t hot a lot hole or a man hole hard, your car will let you know you did!! Ha
Update, I mounted my aftermarket wheels and I will definitely need to install my rear camber adjustment kit to get my fitment squared again. Installing myself tomorrow and going for an alignment. Until then, here are some photos with the new wheels, and a shot of the rear for camber reference. View attachment 520663
Thanks man, My wheels are 20x10.5 +45. They're pretty aggressive but i still have some clearance about 1/4 inch up front and 1/2 on these eibachs.
I am currently running a set of Eibach sportlines with 20x10.5 on a 255 and I have had no issues so far. It is close clearance but it’s as close of a fit without any actual rubbing.
hey. how are you accessing the rear damper controls to adjust? is there another way besides removing the whole coils?So my buddy just went full air ride, and offered up his old set up which was the D2 coilovers. They are not new but they are not abused. I would say he probably put less than 1k miles, maybe even less than 500. His car is not his daily driver so it sees the road less often than my accord. My setup was just the D2 springs and i loved the look a had. But man I put on the coilovers i really feel like the car rides better. I dont here anymore noises up front because the preload on the actual spring is better than my old setup. So i took the car up about 3/4" higher than what i had, and i still get a great look and im still toying with the dampening adjustments to see how different it is between hard and soft. Ill have to take some better pics. the ones i took are too dark.
And...hows it handle? Ride height looks perfect to me IMO. 1.2 F and .8 R. I'm sure it will settle a hair lower in time.
