You know that you can't avoid feeling that bump but doesn't have to end in your brain, you know that this is not an BMW M3 but doesn't have to lean like a boat when you go in a curb. I did it in my 05 Sport TRD and in my 09 off road TRD. I bought a set of ICONS adjust them for 0" lift( except for the famous left side lean) and never looked back. In the 09 I installed the one with reservoir ($1080 deal on this site) and I have no idea why (could be the sway bar difference -sport to off road) but the ride is better then on the 05.. I test the truck 20 min before I did the installation and 20 min after I installed the new one on the same road and I am firm convinced that this is the first and best investment some one could (and/or should) do on his truck. Now I feel the bumps but I don't drop my coffee and I definitely can keep up the pace in all most any curb. It is not a Cadillac or a BMW now but definitely a nice ACURA. 5 years ago I was as confused as you are. Spent hours in this forum and still no answer. What ever you buy ????? make sure that you can adjust them to fit your demands. Don't try to save $500 now and regret 5 years from now on. I hope my answer did not confuse you more and good luck with your choice.
Thanks for the info. Since I posted thid thread, I have been pouring through web pages sucking up info. And what you say about C/O's set a 0" except for the drivers side seems spot on to what I have read. Now, it just is a choice of adding OME shocks front/rear onstock coils or get the C/O's. Never know what the future holds ya' know? I actually like both ideas. OME shocks could be bought today, np. C/O's will take a few weeks to save up for. So it is a tough choice.
Your answer was really exactly what I was looking for. Someone in the same spot as me. Perhaps you and I were the only two who crossed this path. I am like you and do not like to buy twice. Thanks for the info!
And thanks to the guy who rec'd the OME. Very tough choice I have here. Thanks again!
