Hey Snook, is there anything else (besides the springs) available yet that is just for the 04 TL? Just wondering if I missed any other announcements.

Thanks,

One thing that I am curious about is the camber issue. I have eibach pro-kit on my 02 and the camber is rediculous. The wear on the tires is almost humorous.

I am getting 6MT by summer and I hope that this wont be an issue again. someone please post pics from behind showing the camber when you can. Thanks!

I should note that the camber was only really bad on the rear. I think the eibach is 2.1 front 1.7 rear...or something like that

FYI...I talked both to Comptech as well as my local dealer about camber issues....both assure me that there is no camber kit needed with these springs as they should have little/no effect on the camber

They look pretty good. 1" should not impose any camber problems. I have 1.5" on my 99 TL and the camber reading is just a little bit off the recomended range.

I HAVE HAD THE SPRINGS AND RIMS INSTALLED

DRAMATIC DIFFERENCE THE EIBACH SPRING MAKES

I DONT HAVE PICS YET B/C THE WEATHER IN NY IS WAY TO SH**TY
PLUS I WANTED TO WAIT UNTIL EVERYTHING WAS DONE NEXT WEEK

I ALSO WENT WITH 8.5 IN RIM WITH HUGE DIFFERENCE THERE. TORUE STEER SEEMS MUCH IMPROVED.

SO FAR ON MY CAR I HAVE

SILVER METALLIC 5ST
EBONY/NAV
EIBACH PRO KIT 1 INCH DROP
ZINETTI PHANTOMS MACHINE BLACK 18X 8.5
TOYO PROXES FZ4 235/40/18
GROUND EFFECTS
BACK UP SENSOR
K40 CUSTOM INSTALLATION
20% NON METALLIC TINT

WHAT I HAVE YET TO BE INSTALLED

HIGH PRFORMANCE BRAKE PADS
6MT ROTORS (BREMBRO VENTED)
ASPEC BADGE
DECKLID SPOILER

IF YOU DO THE MATH ON THIS WITH THE DEALERS INSTALLATION OF CERTAIN THINGS. TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE ROTORS. THE A-SPEC KIT WOULD HAVE BEEN 7 INSTALLED. SO FAR I HAVE SPENT $2400 FOR RIMS, TIRES, AND SPRINGS INSTALLED. THE DEALER HAS GOTTEN $2500 FOR THE GROUND EFFECTS. THAT IS $4900 NOW IF YOU COUNT THE BREAK PADS AND ROTORS INSTALLED ANOTHER $2000 WITH THE DECK LID SPOILER. WAY MORE VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY B/C I AM GETTING THE ROTORS INCLUDED WITH ALL THE OTHER STUFF.

WILL POST AS SSON AS I HAVE MORE INFO

Scelipt - What did the K40 setup run you? Do you have prices for the gear separate from the installation?

Cool Comptech Springs Now Shipping!

I have mine on order and should receive them within one week. Here's a question for all of you..... Is a camber kit needed for only a one inch drop that the Comptech springs provide? I plan to have all four wheels alligned as part of the install. I'm also sporting the Bazo B52s 19s w/Falkins ST15s.

Any replys?

The springs did a great job lessening the wheel gap.

South Bay Acura will have the performance upgrade counter set up in March.


Dam it was hot today, getting closer to %50 tint...

Comptech springs installed yesterday. Looks great! ride is better than factory ride. Acura tech says it rides and handles better than A Spec. I have not driven it too hard in turns yet, but I am very pleased. I will post pics soon. No camber problems.

Disregard - Saw other post on actually installation costs. For some reason was not able to delete this but was able to edit it. Strange?

imareck, Glad to hear you're enjoying the new springs. Even better, I'm glad to hear they were able to allign your TL on all four wheels without the use of camber kits. I'm looking forward to installing them on my 04. I look forward to your pics.

Hello TLrs.
I just received my springs from Comptech. As I opened the box, I noticed the label said 2004 Acura TSX. As you may have guessed, I called Comptech. The rep I spoke to said they're using this spring on the Accord, TSX and TL global platform. He went on to say that he's received reports of other 04 TLrs using the springs with no camber kit. I'm scheduled to have them installed next week. Look'n forward to it.

Yup...same spring (part # 110155). I was bothered by it at first but asked around and found out its a kind of typical deal...good luck with the install

Question for you. In your opinion, was the car dropped evenly? The 04 TL on the Comptech site appears lower in the front. Please post pics.

If referring to me....I have not had it done yet...next week for me as well....I have not heard anyone say that there is any sort of a rake with these springs...Comptech claims an even 1" all around
