looks good, but i think you should get a coilovers instead and drop it MORE.

I only have about 1.25 left before the tires hit the fender. I was thinking about coils but with the way the eibach's played out I'm pretty much happy where I'm at. I do imagine the springs will settle so it might sit a little lower in the future. I couldn't imagine myself driving around the 10 fwy with a slammed car...

All springs settle. Wait a month and a half and it will look even better. You'll have these pics to compare.

Lookin pretty badazz with the black on black.

Is that a 6-Speed?

What's the offset, I think the new accords can run 19"x9.5" at least that's what was listed on tirerack.com unless it's for the sedans and not the coupe.

good start, however I think you should go lower to give it a cleaner look.

also how bout some close up shots of the lips?

I'd love to see how +38's look.

As it was stated earlier....NO COILOVERS AVAILABLE.

I think it looks great as is. Give it a few months and the springs will settle a little more...maybe another 1/4 inch.
