Installed D2 Lowering Springs over the weekend. Did the rear Saturday, and completed the front yesterday. Very happy so far. It killed the wheel gap, but still at a height where I feel comfortable for daily driving. Details are below.

Installation: This is the first time I have ever done a mod like this, with that being said it certainly took a lot of time. I was able to complete the rear springs in about two hours. The front springs took four hours. I did this by myself, with a second person the process could be a lot easier, and probably be done in half the time. The process is simple, but every step seems to be more tedious than it should be. Although, I do recommend doing this mod on your own if you have the time on your hands.

Performance: Since these springs have been installed I have driven about 40 miles. The first trip was about a 35 mile back road trip where I was really able to throw the car around and test the springs out. There was a clear difference in handling. The car takes corners much better than stock, it is clearly planted to the ground much more. The car also generates very little body roll at this point, I assume with a rear sway bar kit and front strut upgrade you could kill pretty much all of the body roll.

Comfort: Personally I think these springs are comfortable enough for daily driving. I went the grocery store and back in ECON mode. I noticed no difference in ride comfort for most of the drive. In fact, it is comfortable as the OEM springs, until you hit a bump... Bumps are harsher, and feel like a jolt. As long as your on somewhat decent roads you won’t notice much of a difference.

Drop: D2 claims a 2 inch drop all around. Based on the measurements I took before and after I personally experienced a 2 inch drop in the front, and 1.62 inch drop in the rear. I suspect with some more driving the rear springs should settled closer to 2 inches after a few hundred miles. I’m planning on throwing my heavy bag in the trunk to keep some weight on the springs to expedite that process.

Another picture from this afternoon. Not a massive difference but the figment is soooo much better than stock.

Looks great. I'd love a set of these for myself. Expect everything to end up closer to 2in once it settles.
I definitely would recommend these springs so far. For as cheap as they are it is well worth the upgrade.

I've had my eye on them since I had my Si before the Accord. It looks like a pretty perfect drop on stock wheels. I've had good luck with lowering springs before and I think these would do this car well. I don't want to put it on stiff coilovers like I have other cars, thats not fair to my wife and kids lol

I went with the D2 Springs as well. I have similar experience with the ride. Having lowered my ninth of gen accord, I would say the install on 10th gen is much much easier. Adding a couple of pics in case folks are researching these springs. Perfect drop if you ask me.

Looks great! I agree it is a near perfect drop for daily driving. The drop kills the wheel gap and gives the car an aggressive look, but not so low that you have to be worried about scraping or bottoming out every time you get on the road.

What size wheels are you running the D2 springs? Thanks In advanced

CONCEPT ONE - RS-55 (20" x 8.5" +35) 235/35R20 tires. There is a bit of a gap in the back. Going to try 3/4” spacers. However, I want to add a rear camber kit before I do that. I perhaps could’ve gone with a 10 inch wide room in the back. I had these rims on my ninth generation accord, which would not take a 10 inch rim in the back with that offset.
