Hardest street sport setting is softest track race setting.
If there is ride quality trouble:
A) they are not set up right- a setting is incorrect
B) something is wrong- call and get customer support
C) you should not have coilovers on your car- not for you

Between he ride quality, warranty and price point these are a good choice over people considering a Megan or BC BR from what we have seen over the years.
A. The only way that my coilovers are "setup incorrectly" is if some gremlin has been tweaking on my stuff while I'm sleeping.

B. I have called customer support, twice. And both times I was told that I installed my struts wrong. Which honestly is bull****.

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.

A. Good to know
B. I would be happy to assist you today and figure out a solution, here to help so please don't be so angry towards us.
C. Not saying it is the case for you, but it does happen from time to time for folks.

Hope you have a good day

Thanks!

I hear a spring of some sort pop occasionally on my front left coilovers. Also my ride is a bit stiff how do I soften them a bit? They are super loud and harsh over potholes. Other than that I'm pretty happy with them for the price just need some adjusting I assume. Been on them for almost a year now.

I think you're experiencing the same issue that I am. Since the stroke on these things is so short when you go over a substantial pot hole the shock hits full extension and slams the internal bump stop. I've got some banging /creaking coming from my front left as well. I think I've basically just beat the bump stop to death so I'm looking to get some replacement shocks. They're only $65 so I'm ayyokay with that.

So you think that new shocks will fix that? Mine have sounded like that since I bought them. I'm a complete noob with suspension so ill have to give them a call or something or do some research on adjustments I hear creaking as well.

What's up guys! I'm seeing lots of concerns about these coils. I've had mine for about a year and a half now on my 04 WRX. I've adjusted the ride height a bunch of times and they've felt great at all ride heights. Make sure your preload on the spring is set correctly if you are feeling like they're riding too harshly. Other than that, just grease the threads and you'll be good! Mine have at least 25k on them by now.

Love em, I'd highly recommend these coils. Looking forward to getting some rear extenders.

How do you set the preload on the springs? Is it easy?

The preload can be set by adjusting the collar rings that are closer to the spring. (not the ride height ones near the lower part of the threads) The looser the softer. Also you lose the ability to go super low if you want to ride really soft.

Also if the fronts are making a sound invest in a set of front thrust bearings. I have had mine since I bought the coilovers and haven't heard hardly any noises from the fronts.

Ok thanks for the info. I'm kinda low but not slammed and don't wanna come up much. Can I adjust dampening? And do the rears have dampening also?

I just adjusted my front dampers to soften them and wow did it make a difference! It's much quiter and softer. Big O installed them for me and I got ripped and the dampers were not Arthur same spec. On my fronts I went all the way soft and then clicked them 10 clicks to the right and I'm not changing them. As for the rears do these have damper adjustments too? And how do you get to them if so?

Yes front and rear has 32 way rebound adjustable dampening.
Located in the same spot as the fronts, using the same tools.

Meaning if you adjust the fronts your also adjusting the rears at the same time? I have 4 tools total for the dampening. 2 are long and 2 are short. What do the tools do differently? Sorry I'm a noob with suspension

Its all good... To adjust the rear damping, you first have to locate the top of the rear coilover in the rear of the car. Then you can adjust them the same way as the fronts...

I started right in the middle of the adjustment clicks, and I believe I am 10 from stiffest now in the rear.

Cant remember if rhe longer tools are for the front or rear, so I would just use the longer.

Where exactly do you go to adjust the rears. Where is the top of the coilovers located? Do you have to take the tire off or can access it another way?

Wherever your strut mount is. I'm not sure if you have a hatch or a sedan but on my 04 sedan I have to take the back seat out to adjust the rears (hence my excitement for some extenders). I run my fronts 5 clicks from softest and rears all the way tight. Works great for autox and my driving style.

Thanks I didnt know if there was an easier way. My backs are very tight and my fronts are soft like yours and the car feels great! I do have the sedan. I just want to make sure thy are the same on each side is all. Sounds like a hassle

do you have a hatch or a sedan? I have a hatchback and the tophats of the coilovers are in the spare tire compartment. I beleive the sedan are under the backseats.
