Suspension for my car

thinking coilovers, tired of riding springs and oe shocks
not gonna track the car, just street driving. but dont want anything ghetto.
no springs and shocks for me, only coils


Anyone wonna recommand me?


buddy club N+ seems really good for what they have to offer. About $1150 USD , height and damper adjustable.


TEIN SS is about $1700 cdn after taxes, but they RUST!!!!! we get shit load of salt here in vancouver



KW V1 is good, stainless but not damper adjustable.

KW v2 is like $2g i think, damper adjustable but expensive


am i stuck with V2?



H&R coils? i know H&R springs are popular, how come not many people run their coils? their list price is about $1200 USD, do they have rust problem like TEIN????

Is there a reason why you want coilovers instead of a shock/spring setup? For the price of a good, quality coilover setup, if you're just going to set it at one setting and leave it at that, you can look at getting a set of custom springs made up locally and match it to the shocks of your choice.

dont want harsh ride, want something comfortable



looks like im kinda leaning towards buddy club now


anyone heard / experienced reviews about them? thoughts?

isnt buddy club better than T1R?

T1R taiwan brand, taiwan made , packaged as JDM brand


Buddy club, jdm brand, made in taiwan? still has some sort of jap quality control i assume?

apparently the new teins don't rust as bad. but they still blow. BC. junk. H&R offers a full lifetime warranty, no questions asked. that, the very competitive price, and their rep should be good enough. but as stated, a cup kit's a pretty good way to go. GC's seem to be pretty renowned. can't go wrong with H&R and koni yellow. no need to go overboard and spend upwards of 2 g's when it's just gonna be street driven.

Koni's and Ground Control sleeveovers. Lifetime warranty on the struts and lifetime warranty on the sleeves and springs as well. Ground Control uses Eibach springs and can custom the rates to whatever you want. The Konis have an adjustable dampening knob so the adjustments are endless. Pretty much a coilover backed by 2 great companies.

I got my Tein SS for 1000(including shipping) from a american retailer the best price I got locally was 1400

it has a lifetime warranty for it, got a card that says it so if anything I just ship it to them.
from the owners on v6p most people perfer tein for accords just because of the ride, and most people don't have much issues with the suspension pieces only couple of them needed to be rebuilt since their rides are slammed

^ yah tell me about it it was awesome, lifetime warranty as well so you really can't go wrong.

And for Accord's Tein is the best suspension I can get for a DD, ksport is too rough, d2 is hard, tein's just right
