Merging my project here to share knowledge & get feedback from other 3rd gen Odyssey owners...
Going to be upgrading my suspension and wheels soon (20x8.5). Any suggestions on the tire size? I'm leaning towards the 255/40-20 or 245/40-20 (I saw 255/35-20 as a recommendation somewhere on here...seems too off, no?).

I'm also trying to find out what the factory (OEM) spring rates are? Would the dealership know details like this? I have a 2006 Odyssey EX and want to compare OEM spring rates to the spring rates of lowering springs & coilover suspension kits before I purchase. I'm pretty sure the Touring is 1" lower and must be stiffer as well.

Anyone install the Ksport coilovers I've seen on various websites? There are 2 kits:

CHD20-KP, spring rate (kg/mm & lbs/in) F 13/728, R 9.3/520, cost: cheaper than the RR kit


CHD20-RR, spring rate (kg/mm & lbs/in) UNKNOWN, cost: higher cost over the KP kit

Yeah, you have to remember if you look at anything made in Japan that is for the Odyssey it will not fit the North American Odyssey, you have to look for part for the LaGreat.

yeah, those 2 are for Japan Odyssey.
they do have NA first gen odyssey coilover only (RA1/2)
if you wanna get airsuspension, air runner probably the best options to go with. but i'm not sure with 3rd Gen NA odyssey. (they do have 2nd Gen NA pdyssey kit)

Thanks for the feedback guys...you are correct. Not much available for the North American Odyssey! Can some of you with lowered aftermarket suspension on a 3rd gen Odyssey post what setup you are using and your comments on it. Thanks :) I found a coilover kit but have never heard of this company (XYZ Suspension of America).XYZ Suspension Super Sport Dampers - Front Top Mount: Aluminum, Rear Top Mount: Aluminum for 05-up Honda Odyssey at Andy's Auto Sport


those are the same one. its for Jap Model.
NA model 3rd ed start from 2005-.... not 2003-2010

V55, I recently installed and really enjoy the H&R lower springs from tirerack.
As for shocks, I keep on reading about Monroe Sensa tracks, but I am
hesitant after someone mentioned an OEM being stiffer- I want a firm sports
like ride.

The H&R reduction of body roll and dive is very enjoyable, making the handling
much nicer than stock.

I would love to see other options, like KYB, for example, but I have not seen
any through Google, yet.

Dead giveaway when you are looking at Odyssey parts is when it give a body code.

Like this.

Fits On:
03-10 Odyssey RB1/RB2

If you see Odyssey and anything RB next to it it is for the JDM Odyssey and not the NA one.
