H&R euro spec KA9 Legend spring on US spec RL???

Well as some of you may know H&R springs makes 30mm lowering springs for the Euro spec Honda Legend (KA9).

I was wondering if anyone in the US or Canada has used them on their RL?


Was the lowering distance correct?

Did they feel the same or very hard compared to stock?

Were they phisically the same as the US RL springs?


I honestly think the US and Euro spec KA9 are similar if not the same but cant verify. So now I'm stuck wondering why if H&R sells em in Europe, why not sell them in the US. Especially if all the research has been done already.

Only things that come to mind is there might be a slight weight difference or maybe the KA9 was designed from the start with a stiffer suspension for the European market? Something the general US population wouldnt want in their luxurycar?

yea im wondering what springs work well for the RL as far as lowering them but retaining as much of the comfort in the ride as possible too, from what i gather you can use a tsx or gen 2 legend suspension, but as far as what spring rates to use, im just as lost as you are

Lol

Well Im not really lost.


I'm just trying to figure out what was enough difference between the US RL and Euro Legend for H&R not to sell those springs here in the US. It seems kinda odd.
