Default FYI Accord Coilovers

FYI, I did a write up in the current (July) issue of Import Tuner magazine on installing 94-97 Accord coilovers on my '88 G1 coupe. Pretty simple, yet I didn't see any other write up anywhere else.

Feel free to ask me any questions.

If you have the mag, can you scan it and post it up? I'm really interested in seeing it.

I think Ferj had a write up on a couple of options back in the .com days. Not sure if the pics are still up.

Looking forward to seeing this anyhow...

^ I sure did toy'ed with these options extensively ...but don't know about them images!


IMHO; they're too soft for our G1 heavy front-end, although manageable.

I also would love to see the article, good work OP.

Well I Used DGR coil overs and had asked them for different rates. You can do that with most coil over companies.

If someone doesn't scan it, I will put it up on Import Tuner's site after the issue is off newsstands. They won't let me post it beforehand.
