This is only my first set of coilovers but to me they ride great, no rubbing. I'm probably gonna drop the preload on the back a little more. They don't feel as stiff as the tien coils on my friend's integra but he has his car dumped alot more than mine.

Drop the reload? You're not able to adjust the dampening? I don't have mine preloaded.

Raceland's don't have dampening adjustment, thats why they're so cheap. The stiffness can only be adjusted with the preload. Are you also on raceland's, I thought you were running BC's?

oh, my bad.

This is what she looks like after dropping the preload in the back and lowering the front a little more.

Hoping to get new wheels this summer!
