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'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.

Are you lowering it for any particular reason or just want a cleaner look in the wheel wells? Wonder if dropping it any will result in any noticeable difference in fuel economy.

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.

Did you ever install the springs? I’m interested in lowering mine as well

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 just lowered my 2020 Passport Elite using RS-R lowering springs that were meant for the 2020 MDX. Not aggressive, clean and very driveable.

IDK I may be crazy but I didn't buy an SUV the is capable of overlanding and mild off-roading to lower it. I guess I am getting old. If I wanted a sportier vehicle I would have bought a sportier vehicle. I must be missing something.
