Anyone have D2 Racing springs??

Been thinking of added H&R springs but then I ran into these...



Anyone have these? Or should I go H&R?

D2Racing $170 H&R $240

Get coils, do it the right way. Unless you want to bounce after every bump.

Totally different drop heights. You are comparing apples to oranges. You need to first determine what drop height you want. The H&Rs are what I would consider a mild drop whereas the D2s are a big drop. Also, the rear is already lower from the factory. I'm not sure why the D2s lower the rear more than the front. That would make the unevenness even more pronounced.

I would get H&Rs based on brand alone. H&R suspension has been out for ages, whereas D2 is a much newer company. D2 generally makes cheap(er) Taiwanese manufactured parts. They are a relabel brand. They relabel coilovers, big brake kits, and other products whereas H&R designs and manufactures their own products in Germany.

Negative. My H&R's don't bounce. Too much weight on the Accord to allow that. Smaller cars maybe.

How so? If you are saying H&R's bounce after every bump, then you are wrong.

I just installed D2 springs on Saturday. Check out my conversations with other members. Might be a little informative for you. I will be updating more by the end of the week as far as ride, settling etc.

Which makes sense when you see the spring specs. It's supposed to lower the rear more than the front, which is just stupid.

Can you provide pics that are a little more clear?


On another note TruHart now has lowering springs and short stroke struts listed on their website. A staff member at D2 racing told me the TruHart struts will be available mid-June. I sent an email to TruHart today asking about the struts and springs.

Look how high that rear end is...

Don't expect to see a difference after the springs settle. Springs that look noticeably different after settling are bad springs.
