Told you H&R is the way to go. OEM ride quality. When you take sharp turns and push it hard, then you'll only feel the improved difference.

Don't use ebay shocks. Use at least KYB.

Yea I'm very aware unfortunately. I threw some cardone new on both sides and it help greatly. Also I tightened my subframe bolts . I still have a very slight vib at 70 . Gonna take it by my works Honda dealership before I do all this . I fear it maybe my torque converter. Just because I got my van at 185k I immediately muzzled it . But it may have been to late for torque converter I think just cuz it went that long with out being muzzled. Do you have any insight on that department of diagnosis. What I end up doing with your vib problem?

Don't take it to the dealership, they'll just take you on the parts cannon roller coaster ride. Since you work there (right?) I guess you could, up to you.

I'm still chasing my vibration issue. Lately weather doesn't permit tinkering around the garage.

My cannon is running low on ammo lol . I feel I've replaced all common suspects. Though haven't done struts or bearings . Just want a different perspective from someone that sees this stuff on the dayly . Though I've read some horror story's of people taking dealer advice and still not fixed . So we will see but with what I know I feel id be better prepared to deal with there diag process than the average Joe that doesn't work on cars . Who knows. It worth a shot . I was able to do road force on my 20s and was able to get my rf wheel from excessive at 43lbs to 20 . My goal is to try to get them all to single digits.
