Ok not to change the subject but have a question about coilovers.......

When coilovers are installed will the distance from the bottom of the coilover to the nut that goes up to the spring be the same distance on each side....For example if I bottom out the coilover on both sides then raise one side up 2" will the other side be the same 2"?

In theory, yes. However, there are differences in ride height (usually) at all 4 corners. You can do that and then measure from the fender lip to the bottom of the wheel on each side (rear left vs. rear right, same up front) and see what the difference is side to side and then adjust so it's level.

That answer it?

Yepper......I did that but just looks funny from the rear to see one jacked up higher than the other...Didn't know if the springs could be different or if one had a problem or not.

I set mine the same, and it turned out nearly perfect... Within 1-2 mm difference. Kinda ignored the stock measurements, and just went for it. I think I might of gotten lucky though. Lol

I did the same. Set the preload and lower perch the same

Ride height ended up being damn near perfect left to right.

I did write down the measurements between the lock rings etc for reference. I put them in a very safe place.... That I can no longer find.

I think I did a video of how I set the preload on the rears.. but I just counted threads for the ride height.
