    I have Eibach Sportlines on my accord and want to try something different?
    Any suggestions? I was thinking about going with TEIN or Skunk2.

    Agreed. Instead of what brand to buy, you should be considering what spring rates to run in your car. Eibach makes great springs.

    Mainly Street and Strip. Eibachs are good but they make to much noise on all 94-95 Accords. I have Researched the problem with Eibachs R & D Department and they have admitted to the flaw. Rear spring clatter.

    Try wrapping the spring coils with some rubber insulation. If you're happy with the ride height on the Sportlines, you should keep them. Noise from your springs is either the coils hitting each other or the springs moving around inside your perches. You can always replace the bushings in the perches with new rubber or polyurethane units.

    I have tried everything except for an intertube from a bicycle.
    When someone pays over 200 for a set of lowering springs they shouldnt have to be rigging them to work. My friend has cheap ass drop zones and they dont make any noise.
