Default skunk2 springs

Planning on putting skunk2 lowering springs on my accord. The springs are for 1990-1997 honda accord. I have a v6 which is a bit heavier then then 4cylinder. Can I still put these springs on? Im new to this kind of thing so I need help.

Hard to say with aftermarket/"performance" items.

Can you contact the maker and ask them?

Are you wanting to lower the car or just get new springs and struts?

I want to lower it a couple inches. Stock ride height isnt attractive.

Cd5 Have you ever thought about going to a set of 4 coil-overs? They are adjustable from 0" to 4". ?

Suspension is one thing I don't want to "cheap out on" - however a set of front OE springs from a four cyl will get you "some" drop just because of the weight.....however the unknown is the "rate" of those springs. Meaning at rest you wll have a drop, however as they travel, well things could go bad quickly.

The rear should not be an issue.

The 5th gen v6's are kind of an odd ball - not many around - so support for them is limited.

I wouldn't put 4-cyl springs into a V-6 car. It'll drop a bit, but then they'll be too soft. You need higher spring rate to avoid bottoming the car all the time.

B&G Lowering Springs 95-97 Accord V6 28.1.052 are the only springs I could find for my car. Theyre 240 bucks and say they only give a 1.6" drop in the front/rear. Not sure of the spring rate, sent an e-mail to ask. Spring rate for the skunk2 4cyl lowering springs are 591.05.1630
