pre-compression. This is not all that different from your method to set the pre-compression as there will be variation in the way people measure.
What is mission critical is that we have a minimum of 10mm pre-compression in the rear and 2mm in the front and use the monotube to adjust height. If we end up with 12 and 4 or 11 and 5 we are good to go and light years ahead of the inconsistent installations being done in the field. Based on the tech inquiries we get, we have 10% of Pedders Xa and Supercar coilovers installations using the lower coil seat for ride height adjustment
I challenge you to a coil over install throw-down
;-) Just kidding JP
