Suspension

2008 front suspension compared to 2007
2008 rear suspension compared to 2007
Front Suspension
The 2008 Accord's front suspension is a modified version of the double-wishbone system used on the 2007 Accord, with stabilizer bars, spring and damping rates optimized to provide the best combination of ride and handling. Front lower control arms are forged steel and connect to a stamped steel box-section sub frame. A stamped-steel upper control arm complements a forged-steel knuckle, and nitrogen gas-filled coil-over dampers are used. A key improvement to the 2008 Accord's front suspension geometry is increased anti-dive under braking. This affords occupants a more stable feeling under severe braking conditions.

Front Suspension Tower Brace
A tubular steel front suspension tower brace is standard on all Accord models except the base 177-hp Accord LX. It adds chassis stiffness to accept the additional torque and increased grip of the 190-hp 4-cylinder and V-6 models.

Rear Suspension
The 2008 Accord utilizes a new compact multi-link rear suspension. Each side features a nitrogen gas-filled coil-over damper, a newly designed stamped steel upper A-arm, two tubular steel lower links, a single toe-control link, and an aluminum knuckle. The arms and links are mounted to a floating sub frame to reduce road noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).

The body structure around the suspension is stiffer, permitting more ideal tuning of the suspension. Compared to the previous generation Accord, the 2008 model's rear suspension has 40% greater lateral rigidity. The new rear suspension geometry enhances ride comfort and overall handling and braking.

Reduced NVH
In addition to the front floating sub-frame, a floating tubular and stamped steel rear-suspension sub-frame, isolated by specially tuned bushings, also helps isolate the body from road NVH on all 2008 Accord models.
