C. It's not your place to say whether I should or should not own coilovers. The simple truth is that the "industry standard" spring rates are absurd! Even the STi Arai Tarmac springs aren't this stiff.

There is no reason what wo ever, that I should have to deal with suspension oscillation when driving down the highway. As I posted before, I have adjusted my struts pretty much all across the range, and there is no "acceptable median". It's either too stiff on bumpy side roads, or bouncing like a cut spring civic on the highway.
Keith what year car do you have again? I've had several sets of these on different cars and have never had suspension oscillation.. Maybe your alignment need some improving. lol If you want we can meet up and I can take a look at them for you. I've installed more sets of these than I can even count and no one has had any problems.

What do you guys recommend for damping settings for 8k/6k springs? Especially in winter, should I just set them full soft or will that increase the risk of blowing when hitting big bumps of snow? After driving today after the blizzard im surprised my car didnt shatter apart.

In the summer I was running 16 from full stiff front, 18 from full stiff rear

I'm also still having a rear clunking issue after fixing the preload so I might be ordering a new insert soon. I bought them used so I'm not too concerned. Still love them overall.

Going soft won't hurt the struts as long as they are set up right.

If you got them used prob woun't hurt to get some new inserts for the rears if you do not know how old they are and if they are getting noisy. Also make sure the top 19mm nut is tight on the top of the shafts.
(The noise could also be from someone putting different springs on them without having the shafts valved correctly, sometimes people buy different springs and swap them without making the proper changes)

Glad you are enjoying them, even in blizzard coniditons!

I sort of checked the top bolt but it was with a regular wrench so it spun the whole shaft. I'm not sure the best way to actually check... I'd rather not use an impact.

The noise is very similar to the clunk my spring/strut setup made when the top bolt was loose, where it would only clunk over small, repeated bumps. Under normal, smooth road conditions it doesn't make any noise.

I also noticed the rubber on the spring perch had grooves in it from the spring... Maybe that's binding? I heard that could cause clunking as well.

Suppose I should just ask ISC directly :]

Hold the shaft still by putting a 5mm allen key into the shaft (unscrew top clicker adjuster). Then tighten with a 19 while you hold the shaft still with the allen key

Okay. Will do. Stupid question but wouldn't putting an Allen key into the shaft still cause the damper to adjust? Or does it not go down far enough?

I think it should be between 180mm and 170 mm for the overall spring length, if I remember right.

if that doesnt sound right, I would just bring the collar up till it makes contact with the spring, and compress another 5mm
