Suspension Techniques

Are there any 7th gens on ST speedtech lowering springs?
I've searched but can't find any info. No pics of drop, no reviews, spring rates, nothing. PICS please!

I found some info. ST is owned by KW. The speedtech lowering springs for 7th gen accords are linear in front and progressive rear and lower 70mm or 2.75 inches front and back. They offer the lowest ride height of any lowering spring for our cars. KW is selling them for $99.99 on their ebay account. Just bought a set for S#@ts and giggles. *Edit called the company, springrates are 350 front/ 250 rear inch pounds.

I had some of these on my civic and the ride was pretty good. They also sell sway bars and such. I know that for civic they work pretty good. The drop seems pretty crazy though

KW makes some good stuff. Not sure how good their subsidiary is but I guess we'll find out.

I got that deal because kw is discontinuing them, probably because no one bought or even heard of them. Only reason I know about them is from a Honda tuning ad. They look like a quality product and have an awesome lime green powder coating and dropped my car almost 3 inches! The ride is good for a drop that low and I'm on newer stock shocks with full bumpstops. I'll post pics tomorrow!

copy and past the IMG code... I really want to see how this turns out... those things drop lower than my neuspeed race springs!

KW is very high end, hopefully that goes for this brand of theirs. I hope you aren't on stock struts with that kind of drop though

where do you guys see them for 99... I'd take a set just to lower my rear to match the front

That honestly doesn't look like a 2.75" drop unless you're running way undersized tires. That looks higher then the Neuspeed Race springs which drop 2.25F 1.75R

I'm on worn 225/45r17 so they are slightly undersized. I had like a five inch wheel gap before.

Late to the party, but I had some ST springs on a '92 SER back in the day. The price was similar and the ride was good considering they were also on stock shocks. As for the pix you posted, I was anticipating a more noticeable drop. Do you have "before" pictures showing your previous stock height, for comparison?

Maybe after the springs sag it'll be a 2 3/4" drop. I like how they look though. How's the ride quality compared to stock?

That is def not even close to 2.75... More like 1.75, there's still gap in the rear!

I didn't take pics when it was ugly, sorry. Believe me though, it was sky high. I looked so stupid next to the other so-cal chapter accords. I was constantly obsessing about my huge almost 5 inch wheel gap that has been reduced to under 2 inches. Being as low as stage 1 slammed on springs alone, without koni yellows and their adjustable perchs, is pretty impressive to me. I wouldn't want to be any lower because I'm already scraping my spashguards on every speedbump.

ya the drop is cool. My accord is a 4cyl and a while back when I sold my Function and form type-1. I bought accord v6 oem struts/springs and I swear my car has a 8 inch lift now. feels unsafe

anyways thanks for sharing pics

Damn a 4 banger on v6 springs! You know whats up then, it's ridiculous. I'm happy to contribute to this great community. The full bumpstops I'm running might be affecting the ride height, but I don't want the metal to metal contact that results from cutting the bumpstop.

The ebay seller is kwautona, aka kw automotive north america. The ride quality is amazing compared to stock in my opinion. It went from soft and sloppy to sports car. It is stiff, but not bouncy. It rides better than my 91 civic si on skunk2 racing springs and kyb gr2 which has a nice ride.

225/45/17 are 24.97" rolling diameter compared to 25.46" for the stock 215/50/17 tires. So overall you are .5" undersized which means you would have a .25" less fender gap with proper tires. Springs might settle too if they're not on the perches properly.

I still don't believe that's a 2.75" drop but at least the undersized tires explain a little bit.

I'm on Neuspeed Race springs which drop 2.25" in the front and on the lowest perch on the Konis which means another .5" drop which coincidentally is 2.75". They drop 1.75" (2.25" with Konis) in the back. I have less than 1 finger gap.


With 225/45/18 (.5" taller overall than stock)




With 235/40/18 (0.06" shorter - essentially stock diameter)








And for $hits and giggles, this is stock ride height on stock 215/50/17 tires

I think the lowest springs we can get are the Neuspeed Race. I'm on them now, and while I do like the drop I think it could use another half inch to inch. I don't want to spend the money on Konis when I have brand new Blues in there and coils are a pretty penny...

but there is another option. Ground control sleeves! They are like half-coil overs and I believe they can drop a full 3"... and thats a legit 3 inch drop all around. But I don't know really anyone who has these so no frame of reference...

As far as the suspension techniques, I haven't found any bad reviews or anything but there is absolutely no way thats a 2.75 drop.. Probably for the best since going that low on stock struts isn't good for them

I paid for mine yesterday and got them today. They look like they used to be green but they painted them black. Weird, the ones I had on my civic were green that's the color ST uses on all their sway bars and springs regularly.
