    Stiff is really stiff.. So you can dial it up to 10 clicks on the street. I love how these ride. I'm really happy with the rates I chose!

    Im 8 clicks from soft front and rear and feels much better. Had the preload up front tightened up a little because it felt like it lost some turn in response and the front end felt heavy. The car feels great in a straight line but needs more tweeking for cornering cause im experienceing a bit of understeer in cornering speeds in areas where my car with the stockies handled with ease.

    Run at least -1.5 camber, 1/8" toe in, and then stiffen the rear to get more front bite

    So many way this could go sideways LOL but will keep it on track and make a note of the settings ..
    Also do you have a easy way to get to the drivers side Front knob for adjustments ??

    Just wanna say again I love the comfort of these coils at my settings. No more rattled brain. Feels like im driving a FoST now with the aofter settings lol. My FiST is now a plessure to drive in NYC. From fender to ground all around it sits at 23 1/2" but i think im gonna lower the front a 1/4 more for a forward rake look.

    Whats the proper way of raising the height on the rears? I wanna raise the rear about 1/4" -1/2". Im doing this myself with just a jack unfortunately.

    Done. Did it in my garage this morning. Still need to adjust ride height and get alignment done. Pretty simple. Could have used a helper, but was manageable as a solo project.

    Hey Joe, got anything that I could use to raise my ride height a bit. Trying to figure out the best way to cram some rally tires in there.

    Yes i can make a rally set of coilovers. Just tell me the clearance you require

    Adjustable height from 24 to 26 would be best. Might be too big a range, but 615mm plus "bump clearance"

    Generally this is done by screwing with the body and lowering the suspension, but I can't do a whole lot of body work yet. $$$ is short atm, damn taxes, but once it's avail it'll be in your pocket.

    (from the Old Farts thread)
    I moved this to a more correct thread.

    I did not even know there were two types of rear springs.
    Mine are the barrel type.
    What is the difference?
