I don't want to hijack the thread but I'm looking at either H&R OE which is .78 drop or the sport lines at 1.2" drop @True_North_Accord any insight as you live just south of me. Also I checked my wheel specs and they're 18x8.5 +43.
I've had experience with both Eibachs and H&Rs, both make pretty solid springs. For the Accord, I like the drop the Eibach provides. And it's not too crazy of a drop that you would struggle in wintertime. With those wheel specs, you should be good with the drop. No fender work should be required.

I ran H&R OE before really liked them. If i did do springs on this car it would be those probably. I think Tein or D2 also makes a set that is .8" drop. Always wanted to try Tein. But i like my current ride height. Get my new shoes in about 3 weeks too and cant wait to see how well the wider wheel stabilizes the car with the same size rubber.

yes 17x8 vs 17x7.5. Waiting to see how much Enkei new T6R weighs. I really like the RPF1 in bronze but they stopped making them in that color. Probably go Konig Ultragram w Conti DWS06, shave about 10lbs per corner. Need to replace gf tires at same time actually she has less tread left than me lol.

I was going eibach but couldn't find them in stock so I bought the H&R's. Worst case I don't like it I can sell them in a year. I wanted coilovers but the service advisor at worked scared me about dd'ing it in the winter and the rusty threads. Wheels and springs going on next week!!

Unless you need adjustability, I would stick with a spring, strut/shock combo. Less cost usually, easier to setup, and as you mentioned the threads issue. Once I got my coils dialed in I never adjusted them anyways so. I liked my koni sport shocks because they could be adjusted from under the hood. Bilsteins are nice too. Koni fsd shocks would probably be really nice on this car to maintain comfort.

They don't make them in bronze, but they're a pound lighter lol. The RPF are 15lbs

Eibach Sportlines. They have a 1.8" drop. Pretty nice ride.

You'll only bottom out on bad pot holes or dips. If you don't really have bad roads or you actually pay attention while you're driving, you'll be fine. I've put lowering springs and coilover sleeves on 150k-200k struts before and rode with no issue(except the ebay coils were bouncy as crap...)
Did you add any spacers?

Thought I’d share mine in case others are researching....
2019 Touring 2.0
D2 Pro
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.

Bro the D2 coils have the ADS kit for the touring
