Well as the title states. I am wondering if anyone with the 2002-2004 Acura RL has used the oem springs with only the substituion of the G2 Legend koni red struts?
I actually like the ride of the RL as it sits but would like to lower it about an inch. i figure this might be the easiest route.
Purchase Koni reds for G2 Legend and machine grooves into them for the ride height I want. (I think theyre only like 3/4-1/2 inch but I would need to verify the locations of the perch mount grooves.)
I know about the pinchfork needed and the rear bushing needed to be swapped.
Ive been searching for 2 days straight and I dont think anyone has done this since it seems G2 Legend springs are used in conjunction with konis on the RL's.
I'm a little tired of comparing spring rates on coilovers for different cars along with whether or not they are rebound/compression adjustable and mind the fact Im not a big fan of linear spring rates.
SO I am down to the point where I do not want to wait 2 months for suspension components I might not like. I "think" I am down to these 2 choices.
1. use g2 Legend konis on my springs and machine grooves accordingly to provide the correct stance on my RL which already has a decent spring ratio.
2. go for the best coilover I can afford which would be a buddy club for the TSX. It seems to have a comparable spring rates that would work on the RL along with the shock being adjustable. Of course then I would have to get used to the linear spring rate which might be a bad idea with someone with a bad back.
