Which one? They seem to be "universal" shocks. Meaning they're either adjustable or come in a wide variety of types. They are not specifically MADE for the Odyssey but it doesn't necessarily mean they won't work. Hmmm...maybe?

actually coil-overs suck for the odyssey

unless you wat to be jigglin' throughout your ride...

coil overs can get nasty... lower them and they get really tight and jerk a lot, raise them and they get too soft and like riding on a water bed...

if you want a smooth ride you are better off getting springs... I am very much satisfied with them on my lowered odyssey...

it is really hard to maneuver if you're jerkin' around

I don't really care if it's coilover or not. I just want to lower the odyssey. Since you lowered your odyssey, can you tell me how to did it ? Which springs/shocks did you use ?

this is the correct suspension for the odyssey I think... this is what the odyssey at the indy 300 used...

but as for me I had my eibach springs from the accord modified to my odyssey...

since I had them done a year ago there was no lowering springs available in the market yet...

as for my experience with coil overs... my honda civic used to have coil overs...

Modified Accord springs to Odyssey???? Hm...something smells fishy!

Correct me if I am wrong, Accord uses double wisbone suspension with coil-overs front and rear, Odyssey uses MacPherson setup in front and trailing arm in rear. They are totally different setup, Odyssey coils' diameter are at least twice as big.

I've got to see the pictures!!!

Maybe he's refering to the first generation Odyssey? That might explain it.

Does'nt "vspecody" have Tein coil-overs on his Ody ?
It definitely is easier to find aftermarket suspension parts for the 1st Gen.since the Accords with that platform has them available.
