Depends on if you're going to install the springs yourself or have a shop to do it. Most shops will charge around $80/hr. It should take a competent shop 1 to 2 hours of labor plus the cost of your springs.

The key thing to look into when buying springs is the type of ride quality that you want. Another thing is to have your bushings inspected to make sure that you don't need a new set of those. Which you most likely will since the cars over 10 years old now. The bushing kit will cost some money since there are so many. The springs should be of the progressive type along with a new set of shocks.

hey man if you wanna buy some cheap springs on ebay I would have to say dont, because they can brake down or are just plane crap. alot off accord owners would NEVER suggest ebay springs thats if there made by a trusted brand. Hey visit this site for all accord info gen5alive.com

unless there a name brand dont purchase from off of ebay and when you say a "few" inches does that mean one or two inches or three or four if you lower it about 3 or 4 inches you would have to go with coilovers and a camber kit with will run you some where around 1500 if you only want 1 or 2 then you can go with a nice set of tein springs which will run you somewhere around 200-300 bucks

dont go to gen5alive ive dealt with them and many others have from my accord forum site and hes not a good business guy. but you can lower you car from anywhere from $30 (ebay springs) to well over 2 grand. it depends on your preference if you want lowering springs or coilovers. i dont recommend ebay coilovers or springs they may be cheap but assuming they dont break they will bounce you to death.try accordstore.com andysautosport.com horsepowerfreaks.com or nopi.com all of them will have many options for you to lower your car and you can go from there
