I also must ask why you do not develop an adjuster extension kit for the rear shocks which could be run to the trunk for easy setting changes? Pedders has a great product and we are very pleased with the special service we received from Mike.

Email and she will send you bushes and lateral locks for your rear bar as well as your front bar.

The longer the cable the less feel there is making it harder to get accurate settings. We have experimented with different runs. The goal was to bring them up inside the trunk on either side of the plastic by the trunk latch. No matter how we ran them and secured them we could not feel the detents.

On my personal car I broke the bank for a high quality three foot length of speedometer cable, cut it in half and used the knobs supplied with the coilvers to bring them into the trunk well. At 18" there is still decent feel, not perfect, but decent. Sometimes I have to set them multiple times because I lost the feel and think I may or may not have felt the click.
