TEIN Coilovers Recommended Settings

I had TEIN send me a PDF version of their installation manual for the 2003-2007 Honda Accord. Below are the recommended settings for their Coilover System based upon spring rate to deliver a terrific looking stance, as well as, keeping a comfortable ride. If anything else is desired from the manual, please let me know and I will post it up. I hope this helps!

What would you recommend for going slammed, Tom? BC or Koni...?

I don't plan on going slammed, but just to eliminate the wheel gap for a nice clean look.

I know a lot of people go with koni yellow with ground control and they both have lifetime warranty so that's 1 choice. And the next will be amr coils but the wait for those coils is insane. I waited 5 months for mine and they also have lifetime warranty

I got rid of all my wheel gap with the BC's and I love them. Still have plenty of room to go way lower.

3" drop!? You mean 1.5" front, 1.5" rear? You better find yourself some expensive coilovers if you plan on slamming her. Ground Control, BC, Koni...are all top names but of course, price comes with name. As others have stated, FF1 or FF2, Tein, etc. are great if you're not looking to be slammed, but to have a nice ride comfort along with the ability of height adjustment

3" is the max; I don't know much about the dropping business since this is my first car I'm modding lol I've looked into some coilover kits and they are expensive; and no slamming for me cuz my parents will use the car sometimes and I don't want to hear them complain about the harsh drive. Heard lots about Eibach spring, though I'm still undecided between 1-1.5" or 1.7-2.3". Thing is I'm running stock 17" and not gonna upgrade on rims until i run the set of Michelin tires to the ground first lol
