Truhart Shocks/Tein S.Tech

Just thought I'd post my thoughts on the Truhart/Tein S.Tech combo. I bought the shocks because I knew they were made with lowering springs in mind and I read a great review on Redshift Motorsports comparing them to Koni Str.T's. Went with the Teins because my goal was to just be lower without sacrificing to much comfort.

I've had them on for a couple weeks now and I love the way it rides. My goal was to have something that lowered my car moderately, but retained the comfort of my accord. This combo does exactly that. I can definitely say that it is a tad stiffer and I notice it most over bumps (as I expected) but it is still very comfortable. I can also take turns more confidently. A lot less body roll now, but don't expect it to handle "on rails." If you're looking for handling I would go with stiffer springs.

The only thing I would say about the Truharts is I'm not sure about the quality level. They ride well, but I had a funny issue with one of the shocks they sent me. You can see the thread here. Weird Tein S.Tech/Truhart Problem - Drive Accord Honda Forums

Also, I posted this on driveaccord with pics so if you want to see the drop you can see them here. Can't post pics on here for some reason. Truhart Shocks/Tein S.Tech Review - Drive Accord Honda Forums

Hope this helps someone who may be considering these products.

Here's a pic with the same springs on stock struts. I agree the ride is much better and it closes up the wheel gap nicely. I've gotten used to it now and am looking to get coilovers in the future and different rims

Right now i am lowered on Tein Street Advanced and i am already lowered to the lowest setting. is it safe to take of the seat ring on the coil since its only a 2 ring set up and not one of those 3 ringed ones?

It's definitely not ideal or the correct way to go lower. Sell them to me and buy something with more adjustment

Looks real good, kind of what I'm aiming to do with my 07 accord

I'm still enjoying it. I still stand by my review so far. Just need to change my wheels. Sticks out too far and whenever I go over bigger bumps especially with a passenger it rubs on the passenger side.

I'm also hearing what I think is the springs, but I can't tell if it's the rubbing or the springs clanking together. I'm waiting to get wheels with a normal offset so I can eliminate that possibility of rubbing. If it still clanks I'll get spring silencers.
