Anyone on Tanabe DF210 & Tokico Blues

anyone experience this set up on a 7th gen V6 coupe? Can you give me your opinions on this suspension? Comparison to stock? I can pick this setup up for pretty cheap, and I'm Wondering if the 2" drop is going to be annoying. Pictures would be awesome, thanks!

Question

Ok, looking to do the same. Would like the eibach's but I like the 1.0/1.3 vs the 1.2/1.3 drop. How did that work for you or anyone?

had tokico blues. well made and held up fairly well. they did have a harsher ride than stock but not by much.

a 2" drop would be a bit too much stress for them however and i dont think they would last you as long as a well designed adjustable coilover. perhaps look into tein.

THe tanabe's only 1 in rear and 1.3 up front. pretty close to stock springs from what I read, but stiffer. sounds like tokico's a good combo. I would unlikely ever adjust ride heights or stiffness, always wanted the eibachs, but the 05 accord would sit much better with more drop up front. and again, keeping close to stock as possible.
looking forward to brake upgrade, probably the more important purhchase. going with up size to 11.8" and gs. easy basic and cheap

brakes are what the accord lacks the most! make sure to get good pads. im currently running Stoptech sport which is a step up from the street. very good braking especially once you get a big of heat into them, and brake fade is rare unless lapping for extended amount of time on a track.

i'll check those out. ebc or hawk seems what most reccomend. or akebono. ebc usb slotted, its a V slot, are the rotors i'm looking at. want 12.2 for the rear so we'll see what fast brakes can do for the rear bracket w/o their slotted drilled rotor.

had serious fade on miles of down hill back windy roads. brakes to the floor and unable to stop. will never track it but being able to stop is good.
