Thumbs up Installed my JIC FLT-A2's today!

The install was MUCH easier than I thought. I had much more trouble when I installed the sway bars..

The process is pretty straight forward.. Here is a pic of the car after I first set it back onto the wheels. Pics

I still need to do some adjustments, but it looks great..

Now on to the test drive... WOW!!!!
The car is on rails now... no perceptable body roll, and the front end doesn't dip down at all under braking. It's a totally different car now...

Overall, I highly reccomend these coilovers. Very quality product, and they look great!

Default Nice!

where did you get them? And how much? Are they noisy? I want to do coilovers on my car so bad, but am having a hard time on which to go with.

Shoot a mail to Kevin at Pkzero - www.pkzero.com
He got me a good price.

They are very quiet. The only noise difference is due to the increased stiffness. The pillow tops on these things are BEEFY.. if you compare them to stock, it's like aluminum foil vs steel. They are very solid and well made. I'm very happy so far.

Glad to hear you like them.....mine should be here any minute now (he says while refreshing the FedEx tracking page).

What spring rates did you get? I've got the 8/6 coming for now.

I will second what he says about Kevin at PKZero. Great guy to talk to as he doesn't rush you off the phone. He'll take the time to answer all your questions.

hey guys I got those from another I-cluber and they are nice. But I have a spare set of spring that I would like to put int he rear (softer). does anyone have any english instructions? Mine were all in Japanese. How do you replace the springs? undo the top bolt or unscrew the threads all the way?

also what height you are having your cars? (fender lip to the center of the wheel)? Also I read that those are not height adjustable?

Cheers

Nick

Default height

Currently I have height set so that I can get two fingers under the front fender and one finger in the rear.

My pic link above has been updated with some new pics.

Just received my A2's today with rear camber bolts. Any tips you seasoned JIC installers can share? Damn shame the install info is in Japanese.

Thanks
Dave

I'll have a fully illustrated DIY written up soon from my install last weekend. Dave will be posting it on the PKZero site. I'm about half way done.. Will have it completed before the end of the week.
