no 'jdm' website ever has parts for our cars. ie passwordjdm, blox, etc. we just have to make parts for other cars work.

on the rear visor, usually people buy the 6th gen accord one. it fits ok, but it has a gap on the sides.

Rear window visor that fits perfect, second two items from the bottom: http://www.sarona.com/index.php?m=1

To find out whats out there I use ebay and andysautosport.com I wouldnt buy from Andys though, I just find somrthing on there, then type it into google and another company might have it for sale. Most of the time they do and its cheaper with better customer service.


As far as suspension there isn’t a cheap or easy solution. Lowering springs on stock struts is stupid, irresponsible and dangerous. It will also ride like shit, wear tires like shit and really be shitty entirely other than your car being "low".

You have two options. Coilovers or a strut and spring combo. If your after performance, reliablity and safety and to go lower go for a spring and strut combo. If you want to go really low, safely and reliably with a good ride go for Coilovers.

Coilovers - F&F type 1s. If your wanting to go as low as you can you will need a camber kit front & rear and an alignment. No questions asked about that unless you want to wear tires like a mofo. That’s the bare minimum. Price wise this is also the cheapest option. If you want the negative camber and are aware the high amount of tire wear that the F&Fs will give you as low they can go then you still need an alignment.

F&F Type 1s. http://www.ebay.com/itm/FUNCTION-AND...4055d6&vxp=mtr

Front Ingalls camber kit. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Two-2-Ingall...2b8d5c&vxp=mtr

Rear Megan Camber Kit. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Megan-Racing...7653df&vxp=mtr

^^^ That’s the cheapest combo for Coilovers. Dumping your CB to the max that the F&F type 1s will go will require a camber kit unless you don’t care about going through tires like mad.

The lowest springs you can get are H&R race spring and Neuspeed race springs.

Neuspeed springs. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEUSPEED-RAC...65572a&vxp=mtr

H&R race springs. http://www.ebay.com/itm/H-R-LOWERING...3c4b76&vxp=mtr

To handle the drop those springs give you won’t be able to safely and reliably use anything else other than Koni Yellows.

Koni Yellows. http://www.ebay.com/itm/KONI-YELLOW-...99a56f&vxp=mtr

And a camber kit is debatable but I see it as needed. The Ingalls and Megan above will be the cheapest for this route as well.

An alignment is still needed.

The F&F Type 1 Coilovers will get you lower than the spring/strut combo route.

Suspensions are one thing you can’t cheap out on. People do it and some get away with it. But it’s not smart and can cause you to wreck your car plus you won’t ever get the most out of it and it WILL ride like shit.

Honestly you can't have looked very hard.
There is 10 years info on this site, and google has all of this forum, plus the whole rest of the internet.

Now that that has been said, read this: http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/announcement.php?f=108

If at first you don't succeed, Try again. Don't give up too easily, persistance pays off in the end.
