Got these bad boys for my 97.





Ride is great, but I need alignment yet.

I'm really interested in seeing what those ride like. Could you be more specific about what the ride is like?

Mainly interested in knowing what the stiffness is like (soft, stock, stiff, really stiff, back breaking stiff). What's the balance front/rear like? Is the ass end of the car really bouncy? (like when you go over bumps the front acts like you didn't hit one and the back catapults into the air) and what do you think of the quality and fitment of them?

Hi, Nick. Oh boy, I'll try to answer your questions. I'd say the ride falls in the stiff category. My last set up was S Techs on Tokicos and I thought they rode real nice, but I like a real smooth ride. The rear does bounce on big bumps but seems to recover ok.
I bought the FFs cause the guys on em1crew swear by them. They say you can slam your car on them no problem. I actually wanted them because I wanted to be able to raise my car a bit and wanted better damping in the front. I was bottoming out sometimes.
This is my first set of full coilovers ever so I'll just say I think the quality is good. The fitment was great. The only problem I had is the wrench I got for the locking collar slipped on me and it got messed up. It slips on the collar now. I just use a flat tip screwdriver and hammer to lock and unlock the collars now, kinda sucks. I'm gonna see if they will give me another one. For the price, I'd recommend them. I paid 579 shipped.

I paid 550 shipped a year or two ago.

Nick, these are what I was running on my old Accord. Loved them. Most likely getting some for the new one.
