    gas shocks

    Happy holiday's all, yesterday I went out and got me a set of 'Munroe road sensor' rear shock's, wow what a different, but still could be better, is it possible that the factory springs could of soften up over time cause with five people in the car I still manage to bottom out?

    while it is possible, don't count on it. i would look at the resr suspension bushings and make sure everything's still in good shape there.

    also, make sure your springs are "clocked" right. if you have them turned wrong, they con't sit right and might cause problems for you.

    I don't know about Accord springs, but with an '85 Volvo I had that exact problem. Got new Monro shocks, and it still bottomed out. Got new HD springs, and everything was fine.
