After market Shocks for 03 V6

I lowered my car about 1.5" 3 months ago and I have noticed definite wear on the stock shocks. I have been waiting for KYB to make some gas adjustables but I have not seen anything yet. Does anyone know of any other company that makes performance shocks for our car?

EZ Arms XR(tm) Rear Camber Control Arm

EZ Arms XR make rear camber adjustment possible on cars that have been lowered for performance and for those that retain the stock ride height. Simply replace the OE arm with the EZ Arm XR, and you can adjust the rear camber.

Adjustment range: -2.00 to +4.00.

NOTE: An OE style ball joint is integrated in this arm.

Installation time: 0.50 hours

I got both the front and back kit, it was from ebay and it all came together for only about $185, so it was a sweet deal. Unfortunately I am not skilled enough to install the more complex car parts but I had NTB close to my house do it for $250 plus alignment. They said it was hard but they got it done in about 5 hours. Anything that requires having the car off the ground I take it in to get done. I did not think I was going to need a camber kit with my small drop but after about a month the toe became severely negative.

Yeah I know it was high, but I had to get it done on a Weekend day and they were the only ones who could do it. I am new to ATL and have not made too many connections yet for hook ups.

Are there shock companies out there that make perch settings? I had Bilstein Sports on my Passat and the fronts had perch settings where it allowed me to adjust the hight. I think this would help out us Eibach Sports Spring owners to lower the front a little bit.

No luck with aftermarket shocks yet... My local shop has been calling around for me and nothing close to release yet.

I'll wait 1-2 more weeks until I give up on them.

I'm dying to put on my springs and rims already... and it's only two days since I got them

00&03Accords-What site did you order from (SPC)? or get that info off of (Easy Arm xr)? I am getting the sportlines and I think I would need those or some form of plates. I'm assuming those replace the camber plates?

Also, I'm a newbie when it comes to lowering and I'll take any help that is given. I plan on running 19x8.5's with a 45mm offset. Would that rub with the sportlines? Any kind of fitment issues?? Thanks for the education fellas (or ladies).

They shouldn't rub at all. I used the Eibach's and have 19 inch Axis wheels on my accord. You will need a rear camber kit though. I just received mine the other day. Its an SPC rear kit and I ordered it from Mantaray Motorsports. Oh yeah its cake to put in....

I think Koni Yellows are out for our car. I had those on my Integra GSR. Great Shocks. I highly Recommend. Expect to pay at least five hundred for the set. Well worth it.

I purchased them from Auto Sport Wholesale. [email protected]

I purchased them many months ago before they were in production. So I had to wait. I have the ones found on the Nuespeed site. They are adjustable and have perch mounts for the amount of drop in your springs.

I have Neuspeed front and rear sways, Nuespeed upper strut bar, and Ground control coil overs. The car handles great.
