I've looked at a lot of truck and SUV forums and it's universally true that people either want to lift them or lower them. The lifting and offroad aftermarket will take off first, but interest will build for performance lowering as sales grow. Check the Pilot and Ridgeline forums because people have already asked about it or tried it there. I'll bet there will be both offroad and street performance versions of the Passport at the next SEMA show.

Basically for a cleaner look, trying to retain to great ride quality though since it’s my wives daily. Fuel economy should increase since Honda’s reasoning that it was lower was due to the increased ride height.
And yet at the LA auto show they claimed it was to have 8.4 inches of ground clearance, and yet it only has 8.1. Only .8 more than Pilot. So Honda messed something up. So much for having that so called
non Honda 9 speed for this smaller SUV to get better MPG.

I see that the Passport is not selling in large quantities, so any experimentation will be limited.
Getting lowering springs, from a salvage yard will be the cheapest way to figure this out.

You might want to check out the Pilot Forums to see if anyone has figured out a way to lower them...

Since they are so closely related, whatever they did may also work on the Passport...!

I know no one probably knows quite yet, but wanting to lower my passport some. Curious if the MDX springs will work since it shares the same platform as the pilot which the passport is based off of.
I just lowered my 2020 Passport Elite using RS-R lowering springs that were meant for the 2020 MDX. Not aggressive, clean and very driveable.

As negative camber increases so does negative toe (in).
Camber effects toe and Acura/honda all wheel drive systems should have some rear negative toe (in). The rear negative toe will correct itself as the vehicle drives/moves down the road.
This Acura/honda Sh-AWD & ivtm 4WD design compensates for the vehicle applying more force to the front wheels (most of the time), which essentially drags the rear wheels a little.
So the rear camber can be off by 1 - 2 degrees, with the vehicle at rest, which will register as some negative toe.
