S-W-E-E-T ! It'll fit right in with the Lagreats in Japan !

Question: Are the collars in the coils and coil-overs easy to adjust ? Is it a "jack it up ,turn and voila" ?
Thanks

hachiroku,

very easy to adjust. No jacking up.
turn wheel all the way, and spin the locknut.
It's sitting at 5 inches right now.
That's pretty much what I'm comfortable w/ getting out of my driveway, getting to Ala Moana mall, and getting in the parking lot at work.
I can go down to 2 1/2 though. but that's just scary.

phsu- body kit is from Japan. I had it shipped directly to my house. Unpainted. Was cheaper that way. Got it painted locally at a shop. installed it myself to save whatever money I could.
Very easy to install.

I don't know if I want to waste money investing on something that doesn't boost my trade-in value or resale value. I'll keep my Odyssey simple and less headache. Larger wheels and tires, more drag and take more gas.

You're missing the whole point of vehicle ownership. The vehicle becomes a part of the family. It's not an investment. Shoot, you lose money just by driving it off the lot. Mods don't boost the value, they boost your enjoyment of the vehicle.

Very nice. I don't think it's going to happen with my 02 Ody. Lowered the 98 Accord with Suspension Tech. springs and put nice rims on it. Wife didn't like the ride as much as the day we drove it off the lot. It didn't ride bad at all for a lowered car. How is the ride of your Ody? Pretty sure mine will stay stock.

I have to say the ride is like stock, if not better. I think that it is all due to the HKS damper/shock absorbers.

After a year w/ the Tanabe drop springs, my wife was starting to complain about the ride. That's why I decided to 'upgrade'.
She likes it now.

And with the 20's. ou wouldn't believe how many stares I get on the road.

NICE! I like the aftermarket tint on the windows too. What percent did you go with?
I'm starting to think about lowering my 1968 Land Rover...

WOW! That looks great

Makes my 17s look positively puny! Couple of questions:
Do they rub at all? Any idea how much they weigh? (just curious) I would really like the adjustability of the HKS struts and the nice ride, but I assume they don't ship to the continental U.S.?
Nice job!
