heres a link on the drop. people are saying to drive it 200 miles for the springs can settle. others like BMR reps are saying 50 miles is good enough.

also mentioned is re timing the bushings . does this present a problem?

The reference the manufacturers place on the "Miles traveled" is just a guide for the springs to settle in. They will settle in after a few days regardless, the front springs due to the weight of the engine will settle in before the rear usually. Regarding the timing of the bushings, this is very important because when the car was assembled it has a preload already set in to the bushings. This is because when you change the factory height by placing lower springs you change the geometry of the suspension which was timed to a higher stance (this is what causes the preload on the bushings). Not performing the "timing of the bushings" could affect the finished height of the vehicle. When you loosen up the bushings and then bounce it a few times it will release the preload on them. Don't worry we at C5M guarantee all our work.

That storm or rain. Which ever you want to call it....


Was on some roider rage.....who took a dump in mother natures coffee?

Where and how much is this bushing timing?! After I dropped it I took it to get aligned. And I asked about it and they said no.

I hate when people do this kind of crap -__- I've been ridin like that for a while -__-
