damn accord's wheel gaps are huge!! I can fit my whole head in there... :D

Even after your drop, ur car dont look dropped. Only other accord owners can tell ur car is dropped. :(

IN order to look dropped our cars need to be dropped 2 inches or more.

These pictures aren't directly from the side but they should give you an idea. Stayed with 17x7 wheels but went from 215/50/17 to 225/50/17 tires.

Stock look a few minutes after I drove off the dealership:






Lowered on Comptech springs and Koni yellows:

Flyvte,
Thanks a lot I am looking for 17inch (as of now) myself. Grate pix. How much was your drop? Big difference in comfort? I bet handling is better. Did you have to do anything with alignment?

thanks again :D

Thanks for the photos they give me good comparison
The H-tech is rated for 1.4 inch front / 0.7 inch in back.

:D Yah the wheel gaps were exaggerated by going to 225/45 tires from the stock 215/50 but in general Honda seems to have a bigger wheel gap then other cars out there. I wasn't looking for the slammed look, so that's why I went with the H-Tech. Now it looks like it should have from the factory.

I think you are confusing with flyvtec who has Comptech springs. H-tech springs are made by Tein.

I do not have a camber kit, though when I had my wheels realigned they said that the rear camber was slightly out of spec and I should get one for the rear. The front did not need a camber kit. So far the tread wear on the rears is a little uneven but not too bad.

IMHO I think the Toyos wear out so quickly on their own that I will have to replace them before having too much camber adversely affects them.

tlak...no prob man...the drop is about 1.25 front/1.00 rear...i can fit 2 of my fat fingers in front and 1 index finger in back...as far as comfort, it's a little bit stiffer than stock but it does ride and handle a lot better...the Koni's made a HUGE difference in ride comfort because they have great damping characteristics...i did get my car aligned (all 4 wheels) after getting my springs and after installing my shocks...after installing the springs, i got an SPC rear camber adjuster to straighten the rear wheels. IMO...you should always get an alignment everytime you do suspension mods.

as far as the vinyl strip in the rear...i asked the tint dude to try to match the color of my car...i think he did a great job...he cut out the tint at the top and put the vinyl strip over the dots...i can take a picture of it from inside my car so you can get an idea of what it looks like if you want...or you can search because other members have used the vinyl strip also...

Thanks Flyvtec
So the front wheels were OK after adjustments, right? Koni"s does are adjustable How did you set them (I believe they have setting positions, aren’t they, which did you chose)? They seams to be quiet expensive, would you recommend any good price outlet - I think I should stay out of eBay.

Out of topic question:
I have seen vinyl at the outside of the window is yours inside? I wonder how hard it is to take off that tint part over the dots. (If not too difficult photo would be grate)
Thanks again
:D
