Were it me, I'd leave the ride height at factory specs on that car. Also, you may want to research clearance issues if lowered; are you gonna have to modify the fender well? Are you gonna need an alignment kit to achieve factory alignment specs? After all, this is an Acura luxury vehicle; it ain't an Integra or RSX. Those are realistic issues to consider. That being said, It's a matter of what works best for you Rick. Springs will not give you that adjustability to fine tune the ride height; good thing is, you'll not have to align it as much; and the ride is normally better than coil overs. Coil overs will give you that precise dial in but will require more frequent alignments and generally give a harsher ride. If you go with springs, consider those with a progressive rate. If you go with coil overs, consider a two stage progressive to avoid ride harshness. With either choice though, don't be surprised to lose ride quality.

Rick...you're no rookie when it comes to tuning a Honda product. You'll make the right decisions.
