    The neuspeed race springs are pretty damn stiff, and you really need some well valved shocks to handle the rates.

    I am currently on KYB AGX's on my race springs, and even at 4 the car feels underdampened.

    I would look into Bilstein SP's or Koni Yellows, at the very least.

    well i dont know why that is because with just tokico hp's my car actually rides very well for having a race spring....so i dont think that a serious strut is necessarily needed

    "rides very nice" is really inconclusive.

    I have been in many peoples cars who feel like they have a nice ride, when in reality its an underdampened nightmare. Sure there are no harsh bumps, but any time the spring ossolates the car continues to bounce up and down for a good while.

    That is not a nice ride, that is a bouncy ride.

    I have been to several track events on the KYB's and they are most definetly underdampening. Ride in a car with a quality valved shock for the rates and its easy to tell the difference.

    Hell, even Koni Yellows are only valved to handle about 400 - 500ft/lbs, and the neuspeed are dangerously near that limit.

    OK i got neuspeed race on the sol which doesnt exactly have the best ride in stock form either. But with the 2.0" drop I have Tokico HP's with these and they ride nice. even with a shorter wheel base than the accord it still feels better than most cars i have been in. also it is stiff and doesnt continue to bounce but not so stiff that the car feels like it is skipping on the road.
