Been really thinking on lowering my 10th gen accord on d2 lowering springs. But I worry it might get vibrating from the axle or if breaking the cv Axles. Any one and give any thoughts. If it’ll ride smoothly I also do a lot of highway driving 70+ Miles

I put the d2 pro springs on a 2011 camry and it lasted over 80k miles with no problems. I drove a mix of highway and city streets. I didn't have any type of vibration sounds or feeling. The car pretty much drove just like it was stock too. I rarely drove spirited.

I say go for it.

Stay safe!

If you're getting vibrations from lowering springs something is wrong. You should be fine just to lower it. Yeah, the chances of premature wear on things like axles and ball joints or bushings is present whenever you change suspension geometry. It's more aggressive than some of the Eibach kits but its still not a super aggressive drop on D2's. Go for it and enjoy it. If you were hellflushcambergangslammedenuff dropping it you'd have more to worry about lol

I actually have the D2 Racing Springs installed on my 2.0T Sport and I like them so much that I soon will be installing them on my 1.5T Sport SE.

I highly recommend them. My Accord has been on these springs for about 4 and a half months and 6,000 miles. So far no vibrations, and no issues. It's my favorite mod I have done so far, gave the car the stance I was looking for. The handling is night and day, killed the body roll that can be felt on the stock suspension and the steering is much more direct. So if you're looking for all of that I recommend these springs.

What to keep in mind: yes the ride will be stiffer and you will feel a bit more of the road. You will need an alignment after dropping it because these will add a lot of negative camber in the rear which will cause uneven tire wear. The camber could be so extreme that you may NEED a rear camber kit.

Did you change your shocks out with the springs or stock shocks? And how much was it to get installed?

Still on stock shocks. I plan to move to air suspension within the next year or two so I went with the cheap Lowering Spring route for now just so I could get rid of the horrendous stock wheel gap. I believe the D2 Racing Springs were about $190 shipped. I did the install myself so did not have to pay for labor!
