    Re: New Option for 3rd gen Shock!!!!!

    Some others details.

    1 Year warranty if used on road.
    No warranty if used for race BUT Selex will repair 'em for real cheap.

    Now about the external rebound adjustment.
    What all brand don't tell you is when you got a shock with external rebound adjustment, you are only playing between 5 an 10kg of pression in the rebound when you adjust the compression. That's why Selex won't produce external rebound adjustment. At least, if you really don't want your rebound, they can adjust it if you ask for.

    I'd have to say a big ol' to $540 a set. Most of our 3geez aren't even worth that.

    I am not saying untill I see the performance gains from this. I mean people drop all kind of money into old car not even worth that amount. If we want aftermarket stuff, we should be happy with a $540 performance suspension kit (check out the price of performance shocks and springs for most other cars). Ok a question I have about the setup, because I just want to clarify. The shocks come with springs right? if so, can we change out those springs with any spring we want?

    Re: New Option for 3rd gen Shock!!!!!

    shock is not coming with coil. This is ONLY for a full body coil over kit.

    As for the price, this price is if you buy it OUTSIDE of a group buy.

    Best thing is to plan a group buy of 10

    Re: New Option for 3rd gen Shock!!!!!

    do I write this bad???

    We are talking about a set of STRUT. Same as if you bought a Tokico, or a GR2 but WITHOUT bounce.

    For the coil over kit, this will be more expensive and won't be produce until next year.

    The problem is that somewhere in the begining of the thread it was stated that they will come with springs, but they are not ride height adjustable. You should edit the first post to say that they are just performance struts and nothing else.

    In no post i wrote that. I wrote the price and it was wrote "with desired drop" this is for the Rod. To prevent bottoming the shock.

    Yeah be kinda hard to design a shock without the spring with it in my mind anyway. Looks likes its coming along keep us posted. I'd be interested if they can handle spring rates like 600 frnt 400 rear in that area.

    Re: New Option for 3rd gen Shock!!!!!

    well, as i said, they DON'T sell springs. The ONLY spring they sell is the spring for a full coil-over kit. and they sell it AS A KIT, not separated.

    Re: New Option for 3rd gen Shock!!!!!

    I saw prices for just the strut but I didn't see prices on the full coilovers. these will basically be a matched set with the damping rate matched to the springs correct? i was going to replace my Tokico's in the spring w/another set and change springs to something different like H&R's but a matched set would be a better option if the price isn't outrageous!

    well, you're right, and price for the coil-over set won't see light too soon too. We will try the 40% first. in fact, Carotman will for me. AFTER this, when all test will be done, he will produce the coil-over set.

    Re: New Option for 3rd gen Shock!!!!!

    Ok, one last question. Say I give them the specs on the springs i want to use, based on what I've read, seems they can match the valving and dampning to my choice in spring, essentially making it a matched set. Sound about right?

    Thats what i would think is the way it works but I dunno really whats this is about still. I mean most companies use eibach springs and just paint or repowder coat them. This places been in business for 20 years doing suspension but they dont mess with springs ???? I m just not understanding.
    And this whole 40% number wth is that. I mean Im eating a Reeses candy bar thats 30% bigger but they been saying that since I was a kid and the candy bar aint 13" long or anything. to much marketing bliz and no hard numbers for my taste. Good Luck.

    From what I know, only the following are available still. As far as the quantity available, thats something that will vary upon vendors. the following exert is from Shox.com, place where i got my konis. These guys are usually good about updating their site, worth a shot to call them.

    Re: Dampers (a.k.a. shocks) + What's Available

    okay from what ive been reading the 3rd gen accord has shocks not struts? Or could it go both ways? i work at a parts store and i show struts in the computer front and rear, but I i also show shocks (gr2 kyb), so im kinda confused here. i think i need new ones my car floats like a feather in the wind at highway speeds? any thoughts?

    people call them struts and shocks. The point the author of this thread makes is that struts are really only in Macpherson Strut vehicles. If they list struts for us, they mean shocks.
