must be the lighting of the camera and the dark wheelwell, because I cant see that much of a drop. Where do you get your Teins from?

Nope, they've been out. I think you're thinking of the full suspension kit.

You can get the S-Tech springs on eBay for pretty cheap: click here.

It's definitely dropped, there's no question about that, but it doesn't look nearly as low as -2" in the front. It looks more like an Eibach Prokit drop or the Honda Factory Performance drop, which, I believe, is -1" drop in the front.

Does anyone know if Tein's settle? I hope so

i went to the tein site with pics of the accord v6 with the s tech springs and that car is way lower than my drop. that other car also has bigger rims and i'm just on the stock 7 spoke 16's. i gotta figure out what's going on here!

well people, i think the springs needed a little time to settle. after having had them for several days now they look much closer to the pics on the tein site. yes i am positive i bought the tein s-tech springs just in case someone thought i might have bought the wrong ones accidentally. i'll try and take pics tomorrow to show you all how much better the drop is now.

Deeznuts-lol, what a screen name. only an aggie...j/k. i'm about to join the so cal chapter though b/c work is out there for me.

edit: install was $85 from my local rice rocket shop. took about 1 1/2 hours.

nice, when u get a chance get a direct side shot to compare with the first one. So the ride is just a bit stiffer than stock?

yah it's just a little bit stiffer than stock. it's not uncomfortable at all though. NOTHING like your friends civics that throw you around on every little bump. trust me you will still like the ride. i actually prefer the difference because i can feel the road better. they are cheaper on ebay though. one thing i should say though is that i WILL need a camber kit from this drop. the front doesn't look bad really but the back does need some help.
oh yah, someone asked me where i got these. i had my rice shop order them directly from tein.

the h-tech springs drop the v6 down 1.4 in the front and 0.7 in the back. i dont think you'll need a camber kit. the full kit from spc costs about $270 on www.nopi.com so take that into consideration. you can just buy the front or back if you only need half the kit, which is cheaper of course. i dont know how much cheaper.

sorry, my bad. I meant on the coupe. for some reason the sedan looks like its lower stock... like you said, your htech looks lower than tx's stech. I attribute that to comparing apples to oranges. I meay be wrong!

But one thing POS.... have you felt a perceived difference in weight distribution? The accord is already front heavy enough, I suspect dropping the front more would accentuate this
