Hmm bro, i am gonna try my best to help you.

Tell him that lowering IMPROVES handling where your car doesn't tip much to the opposide side you are turning to. That's the best i could tell somebody like in your state.

Tell him when it's lowered it will have better handling and make it a more stable and safer car to drive. Tell him it will allow you to have better control of the vehicle. And tell him it looks way better.

Please, with an H&r sport drop you will not scrape, you won't even come close to scraping. I was dropped 3 inches (maybe a little more) on ground control's WITH a black widow body kit and i didn't scrape. Eibach pro-kit, neuspeed and H&r sport drops are ok, but especially on accords, you need to go lower. When i installed my pro kits when i first got my car, my friend came over, looked at my car, and told me "Didn't you say you lowered your car?" :rolleyes:

Don't tell him that he is going to have to buy you new tires every six months because you wear through yours because of your excess negative camber.

tell him this:

-Because there is less body roll, tire wear becomes less
-car becomes more stable, more controllable, & less likely to
spin out of control if you hit a patch of ice or rain puddles
-Improves ground visibility so you don't run over small animals
that may dart in front of you
-loweres bumper so that rocks go over bumper, not
destroying your paint job


the list may go on and on and on... if you need some more i can whip some out of my ass in no time :)

Whatever you read was absolute bullshit. Don't believe everything you read.

The amount of suspension travel that your car possesses has no bearing whatsoever on your transmission. Adjusting the size of your wheels and tires, however, has a slight effect on gearing ratios, thus the use of ultra-thin yet tall tires on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

The point is, suspension tuning is, for the most part, entirely independent of engine tuning.

Whether you choose to believe what you read here or not is inconsequential.
