Re: Does anyone know if struts and springs off civic will work on accord
In short: Nope. The cars are on 2 different platforms, with different suspension components. Lowering the car and maintaining any kind of safe driving/handling attributes will be possible with lowering springs and shocks.
You could possibly cut the existing springs, but that presents an entire list of problems, such as:
1. If the springs are not stiffer than stock ones, the soft springs will cause the car to hit the bump stops much more easily since there is less suspension travel. This can be quite unsafe if you hit the bump stops while negotiating a corner at speed.
2. Cutting all the springs evenly is a difficult task. Odds are, they will not all end up at the same height.
3. Re-using the stock shocks/struts on a car that is lowered can cause undue wear and tear on the shocks. Use shocks/struts with the correct compression/rebound for the type of springs used.
I lowered my 1995 Civic VX using Eibach springs and shocks from Autoanything.com. They had several suspension kit options. You might want to check it out. Without knowing your budget, it's hard to say.
