Pictures? Door seals leaking? Tracking a good amount of water/snow in with your shoes?

All I could think of is the plugs in the firewall/floor or door seals/windows are leaking unless, it's being tracked in by you or passengers lol

Will do in a bit.

Door seals aren't leaking.

There was a storm recently, that may have caused a decent amount of water to get in, but I never had a passenger throughout the storm and the following days. Drivers side is dry.

I was reading up on google, and it could be an A/C leak...?

A few of us had run without fender liners while lowered and have not had a problem. I'd remove them and check inside for anything but don't think it's the issue.

Its not that it's just koni's been around for a while. They not only do road cars but buses, trailer, and even railway. Top leading manufacturer world wide lol. I'm assuming that's why everyone is surprised.

Just looked them up, never herd if them until this thread. Guess I'm just living a sheltered Canadian life.

I'm aware of aftermarket shocks, but are there any advantages to strut/spring combo as opposed to coils?

Yeah I know what you mean though. I can't bother with coils either, snow snow snow. I'm looking for a one finger gap, no very technical but that's how I measure it. I was looking into bilstein/rce combo.

That would be awesome, I have one corner sagging a bit right now. Being able to adjust the height independently would be nice.

Is setting the height hard, I feel like you would have to take the tire off a thousand times to get everything just right. But I say that not knowing how to properly align the height

The fronts you have to take off but the back you can get at without taking the wheels off

Hey guys just painted my calipers today, let me know what you guys think. I dont have before or after pics, but I figured you guys already know what a stock caliper looks on our car so I didn't bother. Here's from the first coat to the second coat and with the wheel on it.
