These dampers have a poor viscosity range. They will thump during the cold days of winter unfortunately. It drove me nuts but the only thing to do is adjust the dampers so the valves are fully open, keep off the extra pressure from the fluid being thicker.

If you think its something more than coilover/winter noise give us a call or email directly and we will be happy to help. Things get much stiffer in cold weather, including the function of the suspension. Not sure what your temps are this time of year...

If you can't adjust your damper settings in the rear you either have the allen key adjusters in wrong; fronts are in the back and backs are in the fronts, or something is up.

Emailing us or calling will be much quicker than us coming across your forum post.

I just installed a set of these on my car. I'm going to do some adjustments this afternoon as my height guess was pretty far off. Any recommendations?

1) How does the stiffness settings work? I used the tool and turned it tight, and I swear I thought I went past 32 clicks? Is each click one setting range, or a full revolution a setting change?

2) Is using stiffer or softer settings better for the longevity of the struts? Does it matter? Just curious.

3) You can adjust ride height without removing the coilover, right? (Sorry, my first set of coilovers here.) I found this video.

The dampening and spring rates.

Does not matter, it is all safe.

3) Has anyone adjusted the height by removing the top of the strut from the chassis vs. removing all the bottom bits? I'm going to try it. Seems easier than disconnecting everything on the bottom (camber bolts, brake lines, etc.) No, I haven't gotten an alignment yet, so I won't be compromising that.
That makes it 5x more difficult! Simply adjust the height while they are mounted up. Installation help can be found here:

Let us know if you have any other questions!



Thanks

I'll add my 2 cents because I probably live in the coldest climate these things have been used. I don't know that officially, but just going out on a limb. We see temperatures of negative 50 on a regular basis in the dead of winter.

These coilovers are great down to about -20, colder than that they are stiff, and clunky. Now, that being said, I've owned a WRX and an STi. Both of those car's stock suspension was stiff and clunky at those temperatures also. The extreme cold temperatures are just hard on vehicles. Seats are like concrete, tires go flat, or have a square side from being parked over night, doors don't shut correctly due to the weatherstripping being too hard. You have to deal with a lot of crap in the cold weather.

My solution for the winter was to dial them all the way soft, and drive easily for the first few miles. About to when the tires retained their round shape too. Let the suspension cycle a few times, and warm up.

That is a amazing testament to not only the ISC's, but the entire car!
I think you will win the most harsh winter award!

I'd agree, especially since I want to pick up another set. If they weren't quality, I wouldn't be a repeat customer.

Thank you. I really like the coilovers. I bought them in the original group buy from AJW Performance. Andrew has been great to work with even after the sale. They worked with me on shipping, sold me the rear extenders and followed up with an extra set screw when one of mine vanished. It speaks volumes. I will be buying another set from them for my project car... regardless the fact that they are on the other side world from me.

Actually they are probably the FURTHEST place I could order from. I just looked at a map. 4,421 miles away!

You need to take the adjuster clicker out before trying this. The shaft is a 5mm allen key

Ordered some ISC's from IIR. Can't wait to get them. Gave me a good excuse to get some rims too. Its going to be a good surprise cause I have no clue on the tracking information. I'm just figuring 5-7 days from the day I ordered them(last thursday).
