So Im assuming this is purely for looks? Will it give any performance benefits to the Accord?

70% looks, 30% performance. Lowering springs will result in less body roll and nose dive and better aerodynamics at high speed.

I think if you want to run 20's the eibachs are good..if you want 19's then I would go H&R

jnguyen or anyone, how is the ride quality any different w/ your springs, which are you running? Does it look like it affected the camber or anything else?

I had Eibach Prokit on my '03 (main reason I've ordered them for my '08). I don't think ride quality suffered at all and I stayed with the stock shocks. You will need to have the wheels aligned and cambered adjusted. I had some slight visible negative camber but tire wear was pretty even. I expect my experience with the '08 will be similar. My springs won't arrive until March.

Where could this be done? And how much does it run?
Also will this affect warranty on car?

almost any shop that regularly does alignment and suspension work. I spent about $350 last time. It will not affect warranty on the car unless one of your oem shocks fail which is highly unlikely with a modest drop and a high-quality progressive rate spring like Eibach Prokit.

HFP suspension?

Not to get off the eibach chat too much but does anyone know wether there is going to be HFP suspension for the sedans? I have seen a couple of posts about it, just wondering if anyone has any solid intel about it coming out or not?

HFP springs for the coupe will be out in April, I'm told. Not sure why you couldn't put them on a sedan. Drop will probably be about .8" so I suspect they'd work OK.

I believe I read that somewhere. The Prokit on my '03 did not.
I don't know if Sportlines are even available yet. I looked at clearance of the upper A-arm, it's gonna be tight with a drop, especially with more negative camber. I wonder if that's why the delay in releasing the springs. we'll see....

revised ship date: first week of April.
meanwhile, collegehillshonda.com has the HFP suspension, looks like it is springs and shocks.
