    ILX Spring Options?

    So spring's coming soon

    Looking at lowering the car so I'm looking at some spring options

    Tein Stech's
    Front: 1.1
    Rear: 1.2
    Part Number: SKHCO-AUB00
    Sug. Retail: $330.00

    H&R Sport Springs
    Front: 1.5
    Rear: 1.3
    Part Number 51890
    Sug. Retail $329.00

    Eibach Pro Kit (for the 2013 Civic si... I'm assuming this will fit..However I called Eibach and they would not confirm this. Most likely for legal purposes)
    Front: 1.2
    Rear: 1.2
    Part Number 4088.140
    Sug Retail $339.00

    Anyone got anything else?

    Seems to me that any coilover/springs will work for the ILX if it says it will work on the Si.. the problem is the ILX most likely has softer spring rates than the Si.. so you're going to see a drastic difference in the spring stiffness that the shocks weren't made for and I dunno how our "dual damper" shocks will react to the new spring rates.. my guess is VERY poorly since the shocks/struts are already one of the weakest points of the car in my book.

    How do these coilover/spring brands compare to KW suspension? I have a few friends that take their cars to a road course track and tell me how good their KW suspension setup is, but it comes at a hefty price

    I don't think KW makes parts for the ILX or Civic Si yet.

    Looks like Tein S tech finally released a part number for their springs

    Drop is 1.1 front, 1.2 rear
    Part number is SKHCO-AUB00

    thanks for the information, finally a reputable brand like Tein has lowering springs available for the Acura ILX community.
    after seeing your post i headed over to the tein use website for pricing, and they're $330.00 USD.

    me being a person that will want adjust-ability and not just being limited to one setting, the Tein street basis coilovers would be the way to go for $950 USD.

    coilovers are good but some people are on a budget and/or just want something mild that will tighten up the suspension, cut down on body roll, etc.
    lowering springs alone make a huge difference.

    speaking about body roll, how bad is body roll on the Acura ILX? anything we should be really concerned about?

    Once they hit the market and settle they will go down to $250. They always do.

    Any idea on the spring rates from these companies? So far the prices are the same ball park and the drop is almost identical.
    We need more info on the specs to make an accurate decision.

    Based off just hype, Tein charges more because people know their name.
    Eibach has always had far and great prices with awesome customer service.
    H&R isn't as reputable as either in my opinion, but looking at the prices above, looks like they're starting to charge more.
