I noticed the comfort mode ride taking corners was wayyyyy better than sport for whatever reason. Besides that the sport was better suited for bumps and pot holes.Greg T...I made the swap to non-ADS shocks and liked the ride. About a year later Acura sent me a "warranty extension" notice and I qualified. I had not cut my connectors, to install the resistors, as you have done. It made putting my old "busted" system back easy. Acura replaced all four of the ADS shocks and I used them for about 8 months and about 8,000 miles. I noticed that the ADS "comfort" mode was very soft and reminded me of driving a Buick. The "Sport" mode was stiffer, but not as stiff/truck like as the non-ADS set up. With either system, I could not say that I noticed (per the seat of my pants) any difference, when accelerating aggressively in a curve.
I used these resistors at all corners. The tabs were just long enough to line up with the plug contacts with good insertion length. If you line your bends up and they're too short the yes I would solder in something to make them more secure. I then wrapped them up with a layer of 3M double sided tape, then a layer of self-fusing tape to prevent exposure. Then I zip tied them out of the way.2012 MDX Advance with shot front and rear struts. Going to do the rears tonight. The resistors for the rears are backorded on Mouser so I purchased on Amazon. The leads are extremely short, doesnt look like I can plug into the plug as-is. Will I be OK to solder an extension on? View attachment 115753
