quick coilover question....

ok, i'm in between buys right now.... both are $300

one guy wants to sell me skunk 2 coilovers with adj. koni reds in the front and bilstein in the rear....

the other wants to sell me skunk 2 coilovers with adj. koni yellows in the front and im not sure what he has in the back yet.

which do you all think would be a better buy? ive seen the first setup and it was very nice, i haven't seen the second one but plan to. any suggestions would be great.

thanks!

i have ground controls that are actually for an I4. I needed soemthing quick and a friend had a set for sale. I have seen no problems using I4 coilovers on the V6. Springs would be a diferent situation. Actually my struts are tokico Illumina adjustables which were also for the I4 I believe. handles beautifully.

all struts are the same on all models of the 5th gen accord regardless of I4 or V6

they will fit but you will be very noticably lower than an I4 would
AND i already answered your question in the SPRINGS STICKY as well as in the FAQ part of the sticky

finally....someone gets me

on a serious note jaydubbs, i'm not gonna hassle you but all the information was right there, plus i'm the only one in this thread actually telling yes or no w/ the exact same answer as the previous post in the springs sticky...you've gained just about as much info here, as you did there
