I lowered it with GodSpeed Traction S springs. I figured for the price they would be worth a shot. these cars are very easy to replace the springs BTW, only took about 2 hours to do everything. The ride is not bad compared to stock. Definitely stiffer and can feel the bumps a little more (especially being in Michigan)
The wheels are 20x8.5 Motiv 409B Magellan wheels with 235/35R20 tires. going from the stock 17" rims to the 20" rims with lower profile tires contributed more to being able to feel the bumps on the road more than the springs have. Altogether, I am very pleased with the look and ride quality.

Thanks for the reply... thought that might be the case... nice look but don't think I could do it... already concerned enough with the vulnerability of the 19 inch rims as it regards to potential curb rash along w/the stiffer ride... don't want to increase those risks further.

I just dropped mine a few days ago. I have the regular sport tires/rims that came with the cars. Looks amazing.

Just finished lowering my 2019 Accord and putting on 20"aftermarket rims.
Looks nice!

Thought I’d share mine in case others are researching....
2019 Touring 2.0
D2 2” drop lowering springs
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 would have loved to do coil overs, but with the touring Adaptive Suspension, not much of an option unless you don’t mind staring at a suspension warning light on your dash for the rest of the time you own it. The ride has a small amount of bounciness. If I put it in sport mode it kills a bit of the bounciness.

It looks really good! I’m going to go with D2 springs on mine as well!
