Ground Control Coilover Sleeves (03-05): MADE FOR KONI SHOCKS

Hey,

Anyone want to purchase a set of ground control sleeves for the 03-05 accord. This is the GC kit that is to be paired w/ Koni yellow sport shocks. I purchased these this week and they are in great condition but I was under the impression that they fit the 06 (7.5 gen) accord. I confirmed through ground control that this kit is made specifically for the 03-05 accord so now these are up for grabs. PM me ASAP if you are interested. My asking price is $250 and that includes shipping to anywhere in the US.

Thanks for taking a look. I will post a pic up asap.

The spring rates are as follows:

Front: 200.64.77
Rear: 800.250.300








Let me know if you have any questions.

I spoke to Mark from ground control and this is the response he gave me...

4516.02 is the part # on the box. FYI I drive 06 accord cpe

"4516.02 is for an '03-05 accord, and was originally developed before the
'06 came out."

here is Mark again "They are not designed for your car. the hardware is different also."

The models that GC makes currently support the 03-07 accords but it seems as this kit was produced prior to the 06 accords being produced.

I am sooooo confused then...why would someone from the company that produces the product tell me that they do not fit and do not support my vehicle...

Not sure...maybe liability? There is no difference at all in the suspension design between 03-05 and 06-07. Perhaps they are being overly cautious. The shocks are the same for all model years.

Lol, maybe i will now! I still need to find some Koni shocks and top hats then I guess. I hope these spring rates will be okay for my daily driver. This is my 1st time ever modifying my suspension.

I know it's been awhile, but did you end up using or selling these? if you used them, how do they ride?
