  • Vehicles:1998 Honda Accord v6 coupe

Posted 08 April 2012 - 08:45 PM

so my dad has been driving his v6 coupe for a couple years now, and i finally bought it from him. I have been wanting to do a bunch of thing to it (of course i need $$) but first thing is first, i need to drop this car.

these are the springs I have in mind, because of the price, should i just save up and get a full setup? will i need shocks too? any input is great since i am new to tuners. thanks!

First of all, welcome to HF and the Honda scene.

Money is always tight when you first start off, but I strongly advise against getting those, and saving up for a nice suspension setup.

After having both coilovers, and regular lowering springs, I would suggest getting adjustable coilovers. That way you can dial in the exact ride height you want.

Save your money, do it right.
