rear springs and perch. All collars in place, threaded down.


rear struts. bodies are fully threaded down


compared to stock
















quickly decided I wasn't low enough (about 15 min) so I spun down the fronts

all locking collars are still in place. 0 threads left




after a short drive






should be able to get about another inch on the fronts if I remove all of the locking collars. and roughly an inch in the rear if I pull the perches.

dampening is set to:

31/36 > FRONT
36/36 > REAR

very nice firm ride so far. Waiting for them to settle some more

im surprised as shizznit that those k sports all the way down arent low really at all, but with that saftey perch out you will be able to get another inch or so out of that. I would say try making the front a little softer because it will keep the bounceyness down
