tsx on tein ss/ tl a-spec - drop?

im running tein ss, with tl a-spec 18x8, 45 offset.
not exactly sure how much the drop is, but needless to say, i do rub @ times, rear wheel going over bumps. also scrape going over speed bumps.

but my main concern is ride quality, since being lowerd ride quality is pretty shitty...
im wondering if i raise it a bit, will it effect ride quality at all (springs compressed more)

stock tsx offset is 55

LAST PIC is without Camber kit, i can get rid of rubbing by running camber (camber is not too much)

I'm not trying to be a dick but what did you expect?
The lower you go the stiffer your suspension needs to be to compensate for loss of strut travel. I'd say raising it a bit would help with your rubbing problems, but you still wont have a luxurious ride

er wtf, I have a 6th gen accord on tein ss slammed all the way down and it's still quite good, what I say is call tein get some new springs you can get different spring rates thus giving you a softer ride.

that being said if your ride is soft and ur that low you will scrape. I know

I think you all have different impressions "comfortable" ride. No point calling tein, you sacrifice ride quality generally when you install coilovers. Live with it.
