We know the TL-S anti-roll bars fit, what about struts and springs?

And what kind of height change?

Mentioned some of the mods on my car on another board, someone said he had TL-S struts and springs he took off at 26k miles and asked if I was interested in them.

I know the Accord is a lighter car (3384 lbs vs 3674 lbs) so I don't know if the springs might actually make my car sit higher due to the lighter weight. Of it if isn't enough of a difference to matter.

Neither of these charts list spring height or rate:

Acura Media Newsroom - Specifications - 2007 Acura TL - Specifications

2004 Honda Accord Sedan Specifications - Honda.com

Worth trying if they fit? Or not enough potential gain for the amount of work?

I had the TL-Aspec suspension on my accord. I didn't like the way it felt. I would stay away from the TL-S suspension as well. They do fit with no issues except changing the top hats to our stock ones. I am now using Koni yellows with the eibach pro kit. it is worlds better. both the koni's and eibachs are the same shocks and springs that are for the TL-TL-S. same part numbers

Get koni yellows, they have a lifetime warranty and adjustable perches, much better than oem junk. Not worth it at all to do tls oem springs struts imo.

7G Accord - 3G TL - 1G TSX all share the same suspension

Any of them are interchangeable with minor or no modification. Prime example, I run Tein coilovers for the CL9 (1G) Acura TSX and had to install fender washers on each side of the rear where the coilover and knuckle bolt together, as the TSX is just slightly more narrow than ours. Have been running them over a year now with no problem
