coilovers are ON!!!!

The ride is great - thanks so much for helping out Jon, no way I would have gotten those on myself.

For now, just look at the pics above - yep, practically no ride height change (oops - didn't have to do that last inch of raising... that hurts; koni's are NOT easily adjustable!!). I'll probably set the height in the next couple of weeks after all has settled in, then post some pics.

Thanks again for the help and garage usage Jon! :thumbsup:

No problem Charles....they went in surprisingly easy in the front.  I guess all those other front suspensions made things easy for us.

If you need help with adjustments, you know where I live, and I am usually home during the week.

The Koni's may be hard to adjust, but they do look awesome in all their Rasta glory!!!!

Can you show how they're rebound and height adjustable? It's probably easier said than done, but I'm assuming height adjustment is a matter of jacking up the corner of the car and adjusting the spring perch up/down accordingly with a wrench?

exactly...you need to spin the perch up or down, but it is not easy, the spring digs into the perch, making it a bit tough to turn...but it does work well.

as for rebound/dampening, you need to do that with the spring off the shock, not together.  you compress the shock, then use an allen wrench in the shaft and turn it either way, makes the dampening either stiffer or quicker...nothing specific for rebound outside of the dampening.
