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!!!

I have the BC's which I believe are made by the same company and mine are holding up fine, but THINK I heard Matt blew his out. You may want to send him a PM to confirm if he does not respond soon.

DO NOT BUY THESE. I need to update thread. Mine blew out and I had terrible customer service experience. I had to pay $300 to have them rebuilt after less then 5000 miles.

BC's are made better according to BC. They claimed Megan builds theirs to lesser quality specs.

Good to know Matt. The only trouble I had with my BC's was my fault.
I overtightened the top nut and stripped the shaft.

Probably right. Look at all the price differences, you get what you pay for in this business, but everyone says their stuff is the shits till they fall apart and you are the one that is put out. Seen it too much,all

It's all good, I had Odi at Feal suspension rebuild and tune them with better seals and oil. Now they are great. Just a bummer that they blew so early. Megan did send me replacements but only after I fought with them. They took 8 weeks to get. lol.

Older XA's had the same problem, well 1% of them anyway, bad seals, since have been upgraded I hear. Maybe the rest of the brands to?

You'd be helping out more if you edited your post #1 and put this same update at the top of it. Most, many, almost all reading this thread are likely to miss this little tidbit you just posted.

In the middle of this install myself, both fronts are on but I've noticed that now my endlinks are a good 3in below the hole on the coilover where I fasten them to. Did I do something wrong?
