After getting them aligned and all that Jazz Iím going to adjust the dampening. What do you rec for normal street driving vs. track when you dampen. Side note I did have to raise the rears an 1.5Ē to be close to stock height. No way they would have fit right out the box. Not sure if they come pre set at the same length but just a note maybe setting them to kinda mimic the stock height with a slight drop vs having to come up an inch and a half. But over all not a big deal either because itís a quick fix just something to share. After getting them aligned I will definitely get back to you. Thank you for all your help. Oh and the paint on the Coilovers where the bolts go through is a little thick to where the bolt almost didnít fit in but we got it to work and no threads were damaged so all is well. [emoji847]
Glad to hear you have been enjoying them! We set the damping at 15/30, so it is right in the middle and ready to be changed to suit the drivers needs. Preferences are completely up to you, it really just comes down to how firm you like to ride to be in either situation. I personally prefer firm and leave them set fairly stiff at all time. The ride height is not preset anywhere close to stock, it is set at a nice drop because that's what we have seen most people are looking for.

Let me know what you think after alignment and dialing in the damping to your preferred settings.
