did your friend or the installer cut the bump stops accordingly? they may have installed the threaded collar upside down, or he may have slid the threaded collar over your shock not far enough? maybe he used the wrong O-rings and that would of caused the faulty placement of the coilover over the shock...lot of possibilities. try an in depth inspection and see what you come up with.

On the accords they don't typically tuck in the front cause the fender is pretty narrow , only on air ride. And I don't think its possible that there on backwards, cause usually the smaller springs in the front anyway. I think you should find out if your bump stops where cut or used at all. If their not cut then you could be losing 2"+ of travel.

i guess to my knowledge...there were 3 types/versions of skunk coilovers made:

1 gen- skunkwork coilovers
2nd gen- skunk2 coilovers *all 4 springs were identical in height n rate*
3rd gen- skunk2 coilovers * springs vary in height and rate*

so which one do you have?

Ok buddy you got the skunk2 2 1/2" lowering kit. This does not go "slammed" Just keep it that way and get bigger rims. I kept mine the lowest it goes in the front. and just a bit over the tires in the rear. So If you set your car lower regard less of brand it's gonna ride like shit. So I'd stay where its at. Riding too low on the road is gettin corny these days and it's gettin ricey

i dont know man on the box and instrutions it says it has a 4 1/2 inch drop there has to be a way to drop them more, i have a friend that has a civic and when he shows it is on the ground. thats what i want them low for so when i show it i can drop it when i ride i would like to ride at good height. there has to be another way , i wish i could afford 19s

I have the same problem with the coilovers on my 99 accord. I have a 1" gap in front with them all the way down but can tuck the back. I have 18s with 225/40 tires. I think its a common thing with the 6th gen accords.
