No? completely different shock setup?
To elaborate:

Front in the Accord uses Double Wishbone while the MDX uses McPherson
Rear in the Accord it uses Strut (Shock + Spring Combo) while the MDX uses a Shock and separate Spring.

No worries man..
As far as a drop you can use the Odyssey Springs and it will give you a nice -1.5" Drop.
But for shock absorbers we are stuck with OEM and 3 aftermarket options only, None of them are adjustable.

Do you know if i were to use the odyssey spring + oem absorber will my ride be bumpy? Kinda want to get a feel of how the ride is going to be before taking action.

I sincerely cannot say.. I would expect it to be firmer since Lowering Springs tend to be more stronger in order to avoid bottom out, But since these are the Odyssey Spring I dunno...

As far as the shocks go it should be fine, Almost every Honda and Acura are over-Sprung! Perhaps the Odyssey Springs are almost the same ratio as the MDX just shorter?
