Coilovers don't need spring compressors, right?

No.... sleeves or full body coilovers. They are easy as hell to install

None of my suspensions need spring compressors though. Haven't touched a stock suspension in years (I'm allergic)
yea that's about how long it takes if you need to play with top hats.

I wouldnt do it without a Spring Compressor but yes you can do it, the compressor is just safer and quicker to use. Btw iKayto are you rollin on Mugen M7's?

Just remember that if you get koni you will need to cut a small hole in the body of the car so you can adjust your rear shocks from soft to firm

Damn, I cannot take off the rear shocks. It is longer than the one in the US. So, it stuck. BTW, does anyone know the code for the bolt that hold the rear shock (the lower-one piece bolt), and the thread size? I cannot access majestic honda so I cannot search the code number.

Thanks in advance.

there is 2 ways. one, take off the top bolts, then hop on the wheel hub and pull it out....or kick it inwards and that knocks it down.

2nd, i forgot.

I already did that, the whole struts felt down, but the problem is that I could not take it out from the wheel well. Coz the springs is longer so it stucks to the wheel hub. I am gonna take a picture of it soon.

i dont remember but is there a fork that bolts to the lower of the strut asymbly like the fronts? cause if so then u can unbolt that, then shove it out.

i did my dads accord the same way.

no fork for the rear one, I just installed the rear passenger side shock + coilover. And I was right about the length of the shock, my SM4 strut is longer approx 10cm than the apexi. As you can see from the pictures below. The diameter of the shock also different, the diameter of the apexi shock is approx 42mm or 46mm.
