Wheels spacers I've been considering, but still not sure cause I really like how it looks now...

I know you haven't had them on that long, but how much have they settled if any? I was thinking about getting these as well and I want the fender line to meet the top of the tire, but not overlap. Any regrets not go with the type 2
?


The ass end settled ALOT more than I expected and I had to raise it up about 3/8 of an inch... And do i wish I would have got type 2's? Nope not at all the way the type-1's ride is damn near perfect, extremely comfortable, not soft by any means and no where close to too stiff, it's so smooth over bumps and blemishes in the road, but still I avoid the big holes of course! And the handling noticeably improved... I get nothing but compliments on how it rides compared to stock, smooth sailing B-)

Looks really good man. Any problems with scraping your fender?

No fender problems or scraping problems, unless it's something steep but I avoid it if possible, I've only scraped the front a few times but it's the black underspoiler that gets scraped, only once or twice the lip, THAT I am very careful about and I must say I do a good job and not scraping it lol

My previous car was a 2000 Eclipse GT and I had done the same thing too it, dumped to the floor.

Loved the look of it, seemed to take corners better and could launch it from the start better because the front end would stay down, but after about 6 months my front struts had gone to shit and I got tired of slamming my frame on speed bumps.

After that experience, I will not touch the suspension on my TL-S, especially since this is considered a luxury car.

Also quite annoying to have to worry about raping the front bumper on the curb everytime I park... Get used to it but peace of mind is so much better imo lol

I put my car next to my friends regular TL when he was aligning his headlights, my car was 3" lower than his


how stiff is the ride

I can't really describe how stiff it, but all I can say is that its very comfortable to drive and the stiffness of them is good for cruising around and it's a good feel performance wise.. Im happy with the way it rides, I personally don't see the need in spending the extra money for type 2's but that's me...

No and No.

Thankfully, Acura had "pre-rolled" the TL fenders. btw, he is running 255 series tires and is still able to go that low...
