Default Would a 2004 Accord need to be lowered if I put 17" rims on it?

Not unless you want the lowered look. Rim size goes up/tire sidewall size goes down, Overall diameter usually about the same.

some accords come with factory 17s already still the same ride height. if your going for sporty looks you need sprins and shocks, or coilovers and shocks. if you want to spend the money you can get full coilovers as well. jst changing the spring will be ok but your stock shocks are not meant to ride with shorter springs and will go bad fast like a month if you put just springs. now if you just want rims and don't care about the ride height then just put them but car will still be same height. so depends on if you want the car lower or same.

No, you don't need too unless you want your accord to has a sporty look. so don't spend a lot of money on that just get the 18" or 19" on it will look good.
