Saggy bottom blues on my Accord EX V6

Hey guys, I haven't posted on the site in a long time but i have an '06 Accord EX coupe with the HFP springs and like many before me, it has the saggy bottom syndrome. It doesn't help that i have a hitch installed and more often that not have my bike rack attached to the back. What i'm here for is i am looking into new spring, strut combos but i don't want to sacrifice too much of my current ride characteristics as i commute a little over 300 miles weekly. And advice on what you guys are currently running, or maybe some of you have swapped from the HFP kit and have some ride comparisons. Any help is greatly appreciated

Get a pair of Koni yellows for the front, swap in the HFP springs and adjust the height of the lower spring perch. Done.

That option crossed my mind after I posted. Anybody have some good miles in in the Koni yellows? I'd swap all 4 as I still am on factory shocks/ struts.

Saggy bottom? I have HFP suspension and don't have a "saggy bottom"

Did you somehow get a hold of a set of HFP springs ONLY and popped them in with the stock struts? That was mistake number 1.

I bought the car with the full HFP package. So, no, that wasnt my first mistake. And the rear springs are notorious for settling in deeper than the front.

It's just the odd wheel gap that I don't like. It's 1 finger in the back and like 4 in the front

The vehicle level is even front and back with the HFP suspension and this is the way it should be. You are thinking that the rear settled more because the front wheel gap is in fact cut higher to accommodate for the engine's weight for larger wheel travel. So you are really looking for the raked look with the front lowered more. Take out the HFP suspension and put in aftermarket springs with Koni yellows. Aftermarket springs typically lower the front 0.25" more to "even out" the wheel gap.

I got neuspeed sport Springs and the drop was even. The gap is the same all around. I would look into those if I were you.

Will give you about a 2 finger gap in the front

I have the pro kit, and the rear wheel well sits a little lower. However, I measure to jack points, and the rear was actually higher. I also measured my stock 06 Acura TL, and it had the exact same differnce in height as my accord, with the rear being lower. And that's stock.
