Hi all,

I recently purchased a 2018 Accord Sport 2.0t with the 6 speed manual. I had been contemplating selling my 2005 manual transmission access cab Toyota Tacoma to buy a “family car”, and couldn’t believe my eyes when I found my car on Craigslist. I had no idea Honda put a turbo with a manual into a family sedan. I love the car.

So far I’ve tuned it to stage 2 with a Hondata tuner as well as installed an Ultra Racing strut bar and Hasport upper torque mount. My plans are to also replace the lower motor mount, upgrade to an Acuity shifter, and hopefully lightly modify the suspension with Eibach pro springs and a sway bar. The goal is a stock appearance with improved handling and power.

I am currently running the D2 Racing springs, which is a two inch drop. I believe it the most aggressive drop on springs available for our platform right now. I highly recommend them!
Right on. I’m looking for a bit more subtle drop. I don’t want to have to worry about curbs. :)

How many miles on those springs and what's the ride quality
I have got about 10,300 miles on these springs so far! They were honestly a game changer in my opinion. I like to drive my car HARD on curvy roads, these springs got rid of the body roll, made the steering feel sooo much more direct, and has the perfect amount of understeer that is very controllable and predictable at high speeds through corners. As far as ride quality goes of course it is a bit more rough that the stock springs but not horrible, as long as you can dodge the really bad potholes there isn't massive difference and I got used to it quick, i drive my wife and daughter in this car daily and I get no complaints. It was the perfect drop in the front in my opinion and no rubbing at all. I do wish the rear was a bit lower though. Overall, I recommend these springs if you are looking for the most performance driven springs and the most aggressive drop.
