Ok, so in my quest for shopping around for suspension stuff, camber kits, and all the goods that go with it, I’ve compiled a pretty extensive list of companies and kits out there that are made for our cars that I figured I’d share if anyone wants to use it as a shopping tool. No joke, I probably have 50+ car parts sites bookmarked, so if anyone needs any help finding something, just let me know since I’ve compiled a “master book” of available parts for the gen 7 from strut bars to intakes to headlights, etc.. Below is what I’ve found to be made for our cars when it comes to coilover kits, shocks, and custom packages, along with basic features of each item, and links to sites that I’ve found with the lowest prices on the web. Mind you, some of the prices do seem too low so they may be either really outdated pages or totally wrong, so just use it as a reference and make sure you do your research before your hit “send to cart”. Also make note, I’ve only really searched for suspension stuff for my i4 sedan, so you v6 coupe people may have even more stuff available than what shows up here, and suspension parts for the Acura TSX are cross-compatible as well. So enjoy. Oh, and feel free to add or correct/edit anything on here so we can make it a good reference tool.

Eibach Pro-System
(Eibach Pro-Damper shocks and Pro-Kit springs)

Lowering Springs:

Way too many to list, but Neuspeed, Tein, Eibach, H&R, and Tanabe come to mind among the many. Combine with your choice of shock absorber for your preferred comfort level and drop.

In addition to creating this as a resource, I also did it to gauge general interest as to why more people on here haven’t tried more setups than just Tein, Koni, and K-Sport. We apparently have Tanabe, D2, H&R, and more coilover kits, and also plenty of stuff like Eibach kits and endless amounts of shock/spring combos. Anyone else branched off and tried any of the less popular ones and have any impressions?? Can you tell I’m asking because I’m planning on ordering my drop and camber kit soon and just want one final sweep of opinions before I whip out my Visa. Thanks in advance for any input.

Just an addition to your post...

K-Sport and D2 are exactly the same thing. Same company, same product, different packaging.

Really? Didn't know that, so what's the big difference/the reason why they do this? Thanks for pointing it out though.
Ksport is marketed for Taiwan, and SE asia area. While D2 is for Japanese Market.

I remember when i went to Taiwan earlier last year and saw the 8piston Ksport and 8 Piston D2 brakes side by side. It's exactly the same... same width, same set up. Different colors... lol

great idea for a thread- can't forget about the HFP kit

it'd be great to have another subsection for sways, struts, etc.

looks like you spent a lot of time researching, you remind me of my friend who spent months researching and ended up getting $1200.00 KTS's for his 240 coupe...I have Koni Yellow's with Ground Control coilovers...they go pretty low, not sure about 7th gens, but on my 6th gen it's low...

imo, get full coilovers, they will never dissapoint you..

Sup Justin? I feel like an idiot that I forgot the HFP kit! All fixed. If you need any info on sways, strut bars, etc., lemme know because I have all of that stuff saved too.

Original post updated with info on a couple more options available thanks to input from other members.

That I did.

Any reason why the 2 shocks tokico offer are not listed?
I have the Tokico HPs (Blues) listed since they're recommended for the V6. I don't think the Illuminas (I think those are the other ones) have an application for the '03+ Accords.

just do a search for supercup kit pics, there are a million of them. At the lowest setting you should be very close to tucking your tires, I have mine set on the second lowest perch up front and the middle perch in the back and it has a nice aggressive look to it and I have no clearance problems...to view mine you can just go to the members gallery
