the setup is definitely stiff. but not overly uncomfortable. it can be a bit harsh on large bumps though.

my opinion may also be a bit skewed since i installed a 25mm front sway at the same time. 22mm rear sway. i also havent played with any of the settings yet, the ride height that Odi set was pretty spot on, the drivers rear is a bit low, but all the other corners look like a good height. IAG alignment scheduled today at 4:30. no pics of the install unfortunately. but ill get pics post ride height adjustment and alignment.

96accord, if you want to ride/drive, just let me know.

I was getting some bounciness. Especially when stopping. The car would bounce back and forth.

I bumped the damper settings up to 20/20 clicks and it helped a lot. I'll play with it more until I find my sweet spot.

Pics.



Gonna raise the rear by 1/4"-1/2" most likely. Leaving the fronts alone.

I'm at -2.5f camber. This is how much more I have to play with.



But keep in mind, I've converted over to STi lower control arms, so I'm able to get more camber than regular 08-10s.

Still liking these at the 20/20 settings. I don't think I'll move very far off that.

25f 22r? Are you running Rallitek Track setup? That's actually what I'm running and I've been looking into buying these.

I would say that I already tippy toe around on the stock STI suspension, what kind of "large" bumps do you mean? I wish I could find some locals in MN to take a ride with...

Perrin 25mm front sway, Whiteline 22mm rear sway.

Large bumps as in things like rail road crossings. High sharp bumps.

Long smooth bumps are completely fine.

Interesting. Quite frankly, I was used to the harshness on large bumps from some of my old cars. I had 3 different generations of GTI's and all of them, OEM or otherwise, I had issues with those types of scenarios. I'm usually that guy that creeps over those or dodges everything I can.

What I'm honestly worried about, and I'm waiting for a call back from Odi, is whether or not the standard 8k/8k setup will work during winter. I'm pretty OCD about keeping my car clean so I'm not worried about corrosion. What I am worried about is whether these things will be ok to handle the winter cold bumps and washboard crap from plows. I would prefer to have something with a lifetime guarantee like Bilstein has on their products, but unfortunately, H&R is the only one I have seen so far and they are too low for me. (1.3f/1.2r minimum)

Oh I dunno. This is just a summer setup for me.

I have separate winter suspension. (Koni + King Lift Springs)

Yeah I know. I was kind of pissd that we didn't get barely any snow. But I did drive out to western MD a few times and drove in some pretty deep snow.

I'm hoping for a nice snowy winter again next year

Shoot me a PM. Maybe we can do it this week.

HAHA, you guys are spoiled. I can't count on both hands the amount of times we had over 8" in less than in hour for this last winter. it sucked a lot! I know a lot of people will say go back to stock during winter, and that's something I'll consider. I talked to Odi yesterday though and he really doesn't think it will have any additional wear and tear on the 441's than it would on a shock spring setup. Rather, it would be more of a choice to go back to a setup I don't care as much about in his opinion.

Needless to say...I placed my order. I think Odi is one of those guys that doesn't have to try to sell you something, cuz he really didn't. I think between him and Adas's knowledge and willingness to help, it became a clear choice for me. Anyone who stands behind their products, and more importantly their customers, is worthy of my business.

Here's a pic of one of the first snows - all this came down in less than 60 minutes.

I think gregonfire has his at 13f 15r - I think he was saying that higher in the rear helps eliminate a lot of the bouncy rear end.

I have mine at 14/16. Like onerazor said, I noticed some bounciness in the rear when both f/r were set to 14. Bumping the rear up a couple clicks harder seemed to help a lot. Glad you're enjoying it so far.
