Guy, I am pretty new here. Not posting so much. I had 1.5 EXL about a year, and I am looking to lower the ride and new set of shoes. I am at NYC, I am sure not looking for 19 inch upgrade. I am toward to have 18 inch, according to tire rack 18 upgrade offset somewhat on 45mm. I saw a set on 38mm and I want lower with H&R or Eibach, for your guys experience will that be rub in this setup.

Any professional advise will be appreciated.

No you won't have any problem with rubbing.

I heard a lots of members here using Eibach spring have rear camber Kit. Is it necessary when using this brand. Some of the folks here using different brand they just fine with spring only?

So, I took my car to Eibach in Corona, Ca. and had them install the Pro-kit, they said I should have the camber kit installed too, so I went ahead had them do it, I don't no if I really needed it or not, they said i would have a lot of negative camber on the rear if I did not do it. Anyway the Pro-kit was to mild of drop for me, almost a waste of money. When Eibach came out with the Sport-Kit I went back and had those springs installed looks much better and the ride seems better, I would suggest the Sport-Kit, I eventually needed the camber kit cause I went with 9.5 width wheels in the rear 40mm offset with 2 degrees negative camber just to get them to be flush with the fender.

Would love to see some pics! I went ahead and put my rims/tires from my old accord (2015 ex).

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 any options out there 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.

Looks good. D2 Racing has coilover with bypass module, so no warning light on dash.
