Is it normal to not have any instructions on how to install these..... I can't seem to find any, other than the precautions and how to adjust ride height.

There was no step by step guide if that's what you mean. There was assembly instructions though. Is there something I can help with?

Nice! I thought those looked similar to the BC. Nice to know you can get them cheaper than even the BC price. I thought a $1,000 was a good price. $775 is even better.

I've had my BC's on for about 8 months now. No issues and the ride is great. I have mine set soft for street driving. Mine are set to 12f/6r right now. I then change them up depending on drag racing or Auto-X.

I case you want to try some different settings I had started a thread a while back to get some ideas on what to use. You might take a look through it and get some ideas. The only thing I would keep in mind is that you mentioned these coils had up to 32 adjustments. On BC and Pedders there is only 30.

Ok so the coil overs have settled in. Dropped about another 1/4". I also added some H&R 20mm wheels spacers to flush out the wheels. I absolutely love the way it turned out! What do you guys think?

what width are your tires?

I'm running 245 front 275 back, from the factory instead of 245/245. Any issues if your are 275 width in the back. Finally, if they settled in 1/4" lower, are you able to run 2.25" lowered or did you adjust them to 2"

I'll have to measure to give you an exact drop. I would say i could drop it another 1/2" - 3/4" of inch if I wanted but the height it's at now is perfect for me. Non issues with my tires and I'm running 20mm spacers.
I'll measure it tonight after work to give you an exact ride height.
Hope that helps!
Matt

Alright, so now you got me thinking. I might be definitely be getting Coil-Overs but now some details on them please like...
- How long would instillation take?
- Pro's and Con's
- Can you change the ride height whenever?
- HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. Installation took me about 4-6 hours.
2. Pros
a. Coilovers are adjustable, never have to buy replacement struts
b. Coilovers are rebuildable
c. More ride height options
Cons
a. price
3. Yes.
4. Do adjust ride height ride moving the shock body up and down with the threaded mounts.

Quick question on this- did you ever re-time your bushings? I'm dropped on springs and had all kinds of clunking/popping noises. Then I had my bushings retimed and the noise went away in the front, but still get a bit in the rear... i fear the shop didn't hit all the bushings. You are definitely lower than me so I'm curious if you are getting any noises.

Thanks.

Yes I timed the bushings. I had a slight pop in the rear a while back but that was because I didn't properly tighten one of the sway bar end links. Once I found the loose bolt all noises were eliminated.
