Just Lowered and now have vibrations

Hey guys,

I installed H&R springs on my 2017 van with 15k miles. Unfortunately, now I feel a vibration during light acceleration. Is this a problem on all FWD cars? I thought I was not going to have any vibrations since the van and its axles are new. On my 2010 odyssey, I lowered it at 140k miles and there was a horrible vibration during any time of acceleration but the vibration went away 95% after swapping out the old axles. Do you folks with the accords have this problem, if so, is there any solution?


Thanks.

I have done springs and coilovers on multiple Accords, TL's and CL's and never did any of them come up with some vibration.

-Have you double checked the axels to make sure they aren't kinked at the boots ( though I am sure they wouldn't have gone into the knuckle if they were kinked).

-I know the vehicle is relatively new... but have you tried flexing the motor mounts and see if something is out of whack?

-Are the axels touching anything?

I am just trying to think of some things lol

** There used to be a TSB for 14+ Odyssey struts that needed shin-etsu greese, but I don't believe it was for vibration, more for a clunk or bang noise.

I am aware of the TSBs and my odyssey didn't have any problems prior to installing the H&R springs. Everything went back together like normal. What do you mean by try to flex the motor mounts?

The vibrations are mostly noticeable in 2nd gear, accelerating lightly.

Hold the brake with one foot put car in drive and repeat in reverse and give it gas and see if any of the mounts flex\bounce more than the others.. Being that your car is so new, I would not think a motor\tranny mount is the issue..
