Any experience with Intrax lowering springs?

Flame me if you need to guys, but I've searched on this and found almost nothing for 5th Gen Accords. I'm looking to go with Intrax lowering springs ( part number 35.1.020) for my '97 V6. They supposedly lower the car 1.8" front and back. This will be my third spring change. The first set I used was from Progress and lowered my car about 2.5" all around. Too low and very bouncy. The set I'm on now are Eibach Pro-kits. Too high in the front but almost perfect in the back. They lowered my car 1.4" all around. I want just a slight lowering in the back and front but I know nothing about the quality and ride on Intrax springs. Any help you guys can give is much appreciated.

Are you in the market for used Eibach Pro-Kits? Mine are about a year old and are still functioning like new. I just want a tad bit more of a lowering. Too much and I scrape my SP like crazy. Hate that.

I'm gonna be completely honest with you, dude. If your into hard driving and looking for a setup that will perform well while cornering, the Pro-kits probably aren't for you. My car is actually pretty soft around corners and leans more than I would like it to. The Pro-Kits aren't really serious performance springs. They do an excellent job of damping bumps and such but if I were you, I would be think about Tein coilovers or some other hardcore solution. The Eibachs are probably softer than you need. Just being honest.

Agreed. Stock was boat-like for me. My car is still a heavy boat. Too bad springs can't help with power the way stickers do.

haha. StICKERS = 5hp


I just wanted something that will make my car lower than stock but not as bumpy as my coilovers. its ok tho, I have a pair of lowering springs coming in the mail sometime next week. I love performance parts stores that are liquidating. i got me brand new Dropzone lowering springs for $9.99 and $20 shipping. I dont have much money to spend so I decided to go with that rather than buy some generic ones.


btw.. i saw on ebay 8.5mm Magnecor wires for bid $9.99 and $15 shipping just a lil while ago. I was going to bid on it but it ended. Someone got it tho.

Dude, I think the Dropzones are gonna put you in the weeds, aren't they? I think they're 4 cylinder springs. The Progress springs I had previously were for the 4 cylinder Accord and I was scrapin' ass everywhere I went. I hope your springs are better for you.

Hey Gallo, I'm in the market for the pro-kits. I'm going to go with a spring/struts setup right now instead of coilovers since I won't need to adjust height that often. Let me know

Will do, Accord6. Looks like it'll be about a month or month and a half before I switch to the Intrax springs. I'll make sure the Pro-kits are in good shape and then send you a PM for more details, if your still interested.

aw, no tein ss's for you accord6? Gallo, do you have any pictures of your setup with the pro-kit on. Is it very boat-looking like everyone else is saying? And are you in the OC area? I just moved to Irvine.

Actually I don't have any pictures of my current setup...yet. I'll take some and get 'em up here. I wouldn't characterize the look as "boatlike". Its higher in the front than in the back by about a finger or finger and a half. it really doesn't look stupid or anything. Its just not the even look I want. I loved how my ride looked with Progress Group springs but holy moly! I was scraping front and back on driveways that everyone else was practically racing up and down. That's all gone with the Pro-kits. The bottom line is I really like the Pro-kits, but I want the front just a tad lower.

Oh! Almost forgot. Yes, I'm in the OC. You and I probably live just miles from each other. I'm in Tustin.
