    your accord will not ride as smooth as the older ones - live with it.. And get all the bushes checked on all 4 corners - but usually its traced to bad suspension units (shock absorbers) as we call them.

    If you want an air suspension feeling - throw out the accord and buy a Crown or something akin

    I think suspension would have been worn out till now so get it checked and replace.
    I have always see people wanting stuff ride so they go for sports suspension but i dont think you will be able to find some thing soft

    Then as to my knowledge, i am afraid you cannot do anything other then changing some bushings on your suspensions and enjoy the drive like it was on the first day.

    Sir double wishbone on front wheels as well as a 5 arm multilink rear, 3 times the amount of bushes used in a 1996 Civic, gas shocks, lots of stabilizer bars up front and rear to prevent brake dive and body movement.

    It can be a nightmare for any local mechanic.

    Please do not try to do anything fancy unless you are in Japan or America or have enough cash to buy another Accord.

    Try to find good OEM gas shocks and damping kit from Bilstein, seen one at Karachi, was of 50-55K Rs new with warranty for a new Civic.

    Bilsteins can improve the ride quality a tad, but I can assure you Honda's from the factory have a harsher ride compared to Toyotas. And don't even think of getting anything done from a desi mechanic as they will ruin your car. Even though 3S dealers are far from competent they're your best shot in getting the cars suspension sorted.

    That is solely because of this firm suspension tuning that it can control the body roll so well at high speed and corners, which is unmatachable by any other car this side of the continent.

    In its class Honda certainly kicks butt when it comes to handling and curtailing bodyroll, whether its an accord, city or civic. I was surprised when I drove the new city, completely unlike the idsi the car was not only zippy but very firm around the corners.
