Just like the title says, has anyone used a set of tanabe lowering springs? I think they are Sustec NF210 that gives 1.5 drops front and rear.
They are for my 02 TL Type-S.
Will they be close to the stock ride and also match the quality of H&R 50103 springs?
Thanks in advance.
I need help!!

yep! I have the NF210's on my 2003 Accord V6 Coupe. Got the 1.5 inch drop as you mentioned and the ride is basically identical to stock. Using the stock shocks and no problems to this point. The ride is great and so is the appearance with the 1.5 " drop. Have had this setup for about a year. If you want a stock ride and a non stock look I recommend the NF 210's.

tanabe's are okay. my cousin has them on his civic and it's not too low of a drop, and it rides near stock. i still think the H&R's are better though.

What makes you feel H&R springs are still better?
If you are to get new set of springs, would you get H&R springs? or tanabe springs for $10-20 cheaper?
thanks in advance.

Hey, thanks for your input. May I ask you where you are located?
I'm located in Chicago area and the roads are terribly horrible. Bumps everywhere and it makes my car bounce on every bump. If you are in Midwest area where it snows lots, and still feels like stock ride, that's gotta be real good springs and that would be what I want.
thanks.

Dayton Ohio area. We have all the bad road problems typical of the midwest in winter. Still no issues with the Tunabe springs. I'm quite satisfied. Ride is stock just lower and no bouncing.
