Koni Yellow Sport w/stock springs

Hey guys I'm new to this forum asking for help. I currently have a 99 Prelude Base with Eibach Pro Kit and stock shocks. I need to change my shocks and I hate the stiffness in my pro kits so I was thinking of buying Koni Yellows and putting on the oem springs and lowering it slightly with the shocks. I was wondering if anyone has or had that setup and give me feedback. Thanks a lot!

I'm not familiar with that setup. Are those Koni's ride height adjustable? Don't know what your budget is but you could pick up a set of Tein basic dampers for less than 700. I love mine.

the reason it doesn't ride nice is cuz the eibach's weren't really designed to be used on stock shocks


throw those tokico's in w/ the pro-kits, and you'll immediatly change your mind on the springs.
my big bro has that exact setup on his accord coupe and loves it.

Pro-kits with konis should offer you an excellent ride quality. I can’t believe you actually notice the stiffness of the pro-kits. To me they feel the same as stock.

Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated. I live and drive in the city so I don't really want the car lowered as much anymore. Also my cambering has been off even with just the pro kits for some reason so I wanted to raise the car as well. Looks like Konis are good quality tho from what I hear from you guys. Thanks again.
