6" spring lengths? Have you ever experienced coil bind, especially over large dips and no shock dampening adjustment?

yes. remember when you buy lowering springs and instructions say cut the stops in half? since i went lower and lower, i had to cut the stop more. w/o cutting the stops you'll end up laying the top hat on the stop and the ride will be uncomfortable.

I don't really want to go too low, the springs seen very short. How low and how hight can you get this to, compare with the factory hight?

well to clarify, springs are NOT cut. they make 'em short. eibach makes 'em for GC i think up to 3 inch tall. they are categorized as race springs, spring rate go up to 1200 lbs and even more. now imagine how stiff that is.

regular kits sell w/ springs 8 inch tall and lowers your car 2.5 inches. mine goes low up to 4.5 inches.

spring rates are higher 550 and 525 to compensate for the springs being shorter. avoids coil bind and helps to maintain a less bouncy/floaty ride due to less spring coil.

as to max height compared to stock. when i had the 8 inch springs i can go even higher then stock height. never did it again when i had the 6 inch springs since my objective is to go low.

now as per how low. the front tucks half the tire side wall on my 215/40. but since the tokico is not meant to go that low, the strut bottoms out. when set fender to just the top of the tire, it does not bottom out. rear is a different story. it has more room to play.

hope that clears some of the doubts and answered most of the questions. lmk if you have any other, ill be more than happy to answer them.

I would have hopped on this if the spring rates weren't that high, I want something a tad softer, I still want the accord to actually feel soft

This is a great deal man. Perfect for someone who does not want to spend a lot of money on a suspension that still provides a great ride quality.
