Im planning to upgrade my suspension with front and rear strut/sway bars and coilovers for my 06 av6 coupe. I've researched and it seems that the TL sway bars are good quality and are cheap too. Im not too sure about strut bars. For the coilovers, im leaning towards tein ss. Do you guys know any sellers or places that sell these? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help! =D

For your info and maybe others who read this... there is a new option that is available for us 7gen accord owners... its the Tein CS coilover system. its for those looking to retain a stock ride while dropping your car a couple of inches. About 2 people have it on their TSX's over on acurazine... more people have it on order, and it appears to be the best thing out there w/ a soft ride, also compatible w/ the EDFC. what more can you ask for? haha... Ill be getting it in the near future.

yeah, for anyone else wondering the same thing... the only way to get them is to import them from Japan. They are not readily available here in the states yet. PM me for more info because even though Im not the vendor of these, posting info about another vendor out of this site might be against the rules.

im planing on getting H&R sport springs for a moderaterate drop. And i was planing on puting on aa camber kit aswell. Do i need the rear as well as the front with these springs? Im sort of on a budget. The CS coilovers are mad expensive by the way/

you only need the rear camber kit. any reasonable drop does not really seem to affect camber too badly on the 7th gen for some reason.

They are about 200 bucks less than the FLEX. Expensive or not, its the best our there.

they were not designed specifically for the USDM Accord, but neither was the Flex, and those fit perfect on the Accord, and so will every other coilover available for the TSX. Spring rates should not be a problem, I figured that even if the Accord has 200lbs extra on the frontal part of the car... that shouldnt result in massive negative effects since its only about the weight of a full grown adult, or just get a CF hood and so some more weight reduction... lol.

edit: oh and Im talking about V6 Accord vs. i4 TSX here... if you have an i4 Accord, then you are practically in the exact same boat as a TSX is.

The Flex was installed on a USDM Accord and not a single problem arose.

word of advice do what you want with it but.........don't go cheap on suspension......its not a cheap upgrade so don't try to get around it....its a major upgrade lowering your car a coupple inches and it envolves alot of parts....you pay for what you get so if your just gonna get springs you might as well just save ur money and get a full kit (shocks and springs).....


in the end your going to end up with
shocks
springs
rear camber
*maybe front camber
which will end up at about 1 grand and thats somewhat on the cheap side

thanks for the advise, but due to the fact that im short on cash do you think ill be safe with just the camber (for the time being) until i can afford the koni shocks, i belive the H&R im looking at drops 1.5 inches. Sonce i got the new rims that space is really bothering me. LOL

unless you got hook-ups on installation, or plan to DIY, I'd suggest to live with it if you are gonna get the Koni's in a while. If you are in a crunch for money you'd be better off paying for one installation only rather than one for springs and camber kit, and another to go in there and install shocks.

not to mention, you never know how much the OEM shocks will last. Some people went at least a year w/ 'em, some only months.

if you want your ride to be stiff, ill go with the d2's or ksports, if you planning on a smooth ride then tein ss will be fine :)

and i agree with what dave160 said, dont go cheap on suspension. you get what you pay for :D
