1. I have a 2012 so on the front I had the white foam peice that cannot be reused, but I saw you had one. But the assembly of the top looked like you had another peice, did you?

2. How easy is it to adjust the height while the coilover is on the car?

3. The rears seem to make a noise when I hit larger jumps, yet I know everything is tight, do you have a problem with this?

Once I find a good ride height I will get it aligned and time everything so maybe that's some of the noise, I'm not quite sure.
1. I'm it sure what piece your referring too. The only thing that goes on the front bushing is the coil cap. It's a red aluminum piece that fits between the spring an the bushing.

2. It fairly easy. I've done it a few times but you must realign the car every time you do it. I bought a lifetime alignment so it's no big deal. The guys at the local discount tire center take good card of me.

3. The only noise I experienced was due to a loose sway bar bolt. Once I found it there was no noise issues at all. You might want to recheck everything after about 500 or 1000 miles once everything settles into place.

Hope this helps!
Matt

Hunter is right, its only required if you plan on messing with the adjuster a lot. If you don't want to drill a hole just set it to 15 or 20 and install it. No hole required.

I don't remember. I know Ohio speed, a forum sponser sells them now. Might get a good deal through him.

Here's the site I bought mine from. They raised the price a little though.

For me I don't see cutting a whole in the trunk as an issue. Makes it a heck of a lot easier to make adjustments.

I know there people that just feel like they would be chopping up there car but out of curiosity, what are your concerns with cutting a whole?

Mostly structural integrity. I fear the hole being a weak spot.

Thank you! I would like too. I haven't been there since last year. Such a fun track. I've had a few upgrades since them so my lap times should be much better :-)

If you saw them in person you would probably change your mind on that. It's very little metal removed in comparison to the whole trunk.

I've had the wholes in my trunk for about 1 year and 8 months. No issues what so ever.

Now, if you had a '12 or '13 you could get by with the small whole for the extensions since you'll need them for the change in the trunk anyway. Actually, as far as that goes you could use the extensions even your car. Those only require something like a 1/2" whole.

I've played with different ride heights and I'm happy with where it is at now which is about 1.5" lower than stock. I love the stance it has.

I added a supercharger recently and with my 4.10 gears I was having traction issues because I was over powering the rear tires so much. I played with the adjustments, soften up the rear to about 10 and the fronts to about 14. The car immediately hooked better due to better weight transfer.

These coilovers are awesome for the money.
I'm thinking its update time how long have you had these coilovers on your car now? how many miles have you put on them and are you still liking them? Any noises develop with them yet? Anything changes to ride or are they just as good as the day you put them on? Thanks bud, appreciate the time and effort updating this thread. Your car looks great!!!
