V6 Coupe - 19s and lowering questions

Hey this is for the V6 coupe guys out there who have their cars dropped with rims. My car is unfortuneately STOCK right now, however, I have my eyes set on some 19x8 rims that I am most likely definitely going to buy, the tires are 235/35/19ZR.

Anyway, I see a lot of you have GROUND CONTROL coilovers, as well as some having Tein springs. I want their to not me much fender gap at all, but not enough to kill the ride completely. I am completely baffled on which to get, I dont want to have to get a camber kit, but I guess if I have to I have to... I want the ride to be some what good, I know its not going to be as good as stock obviously but I dont want it to be bouncy or too stiff. Any suggestions? Eibach springs, Tein springs, (I heard some negative stuff about H&R) so I am going to stay away from them.

I only have $500 to spend on suspension parts! Thanks guys

well i would tell u to get ground control...cuase i have them....but if u dont really care about slamming ur car...i would say get sportlines...thre is a black 7th gen with 19s and the eibach sportlines are perfect with the 19s.....the gap is 1 or 2 fingers....and the ride looks good....and with the extra 200 or so u can get rear camber kit....since the rear is going to have the most neg camber....dont forget to get an alignment.

Thanks for the info, I like the way your car looks like with the GCs so Im still considering them. Im glad to hear Eibachs looks good however!

mastadulog,

Tein SPRINGS or Coilovers are you saying can give a better stock ride?

Thanks!

Tom

Also, wouldnt I want a camber kit in te front 1st, because the car gets dropped more in the front? OR is the rear just much less adjustable. Also, how much did you pay for the rear kit, I found it for 149.

The front camber can be fixed with an alignment, the rear can't. I have GC but after almost a year of riding on them as low as i am i can feel the shocks are not as stiff as before. Teins here I come.

I figured, so same was the case with my last car. I just checked out the TEIN springs vs. EIBACH

Front Drop Tein/EB - (1.4/1.2)
Rear Drop Tein/EB - (0.7/1.2)

Kinda weird they are both so different... TEIN has a pic of a lowered 03 accord coupe and it looks pretty good, but I hear good about the way Eibachs look too! This is hard!

I would get Teins, if you look at your car you see that the front is higher than the rear. If you go with eibach your gonna lower equally so your gonna have the "saggy butt" look, it will still loook uneven. If you go with Tein the front will lower more than the rear giving you an even look.

Just how bad is the camber once you lower it with the Teins? I'm gonna get the springs soon and i just wanna know how quickly the camber issue needs to be addressed.

And theres no reported sagging with the Teins, correct?

I just figured out that TEIN has 2 different springs available for our car, one much lower than the other, the other one i didnt see is 2"F and 1.2R drop. Thats the STECH, the HTECH is 1.4F, .7R!

Im def getting the S TECH! Just put a bid on ebay for them for 150 shipped! Hope I get it.

Can the front camber still be adjusted even with a 2" drop in the front?

Yes it can. Im on GC coilovers and in the front they are almost all the way down. Its like a 2.5-3" drop, dont know exactly and all they did was an alignment and the camber was fix.
