Don't worry, BC racing makes these for Megan Racing as well so they are rebuildable . Also you should be able to use Certain Eibach springs with these for different spring options.

So far really good. I have the stiffness set at 22 out of 32 front and rear. At this setting its about the same ride as my Hotchkis 1" springs. Im going to soften them all the way up and see how it does. Only minor scrapping so far was in a parking lot with really narly speed bumps but I expected that.

Did it yesterday with my brother. Took me 2 hours to redo the front end. It feels absolutely no different at all but glad that it's on correctly now.

Did it drop the front end? Were the foam insulators smashed?

Well I measured the foam rings first to see how much I need to readjust for...which was about .25". When I let the car back down, it was at the same height as it was before removing the foam.

The foam was fine and was not smashed. I don't see how it can get smashed because it's made out of a steel core. It was in great condition. I kept it in a drawer incase if I ever go back to stock.
