So the rear is at it's highest setting, what about the front? I don't want to bother my mechanic when he installs them this weekend. I think your drop is perfect, not too low! Please let me know the exact setting. Thanks.

Yes, the rears are at the highest, but I couldn't tell you exactly what the fronts are set at. Prob somewhere in the middle. He said there's quite a bit left to go in the front.

Very satisfied. Car feels a whole lot "meaner", well at least in my eyes lol. Ride is good, a bit harsher than before but nothing overwelming.

I know this is an old post but I actually clear coat all my new suspension components before installing for an extra layer of protection, it definitely helps.

If you don't plan on moving the ride height on coilovers, you can spray the threads too. I ended up dialing my ride height then giving the threads a quick coating also.

I noticed the parts stay cleaner a lot longer and resist corrosion better. This goes for any suspension component.

I used Boeshield T-9 on my coils prior to installation. It is non-permanent but provides excellent protection. It also acts as a lubricant which makes adjusting your coils very easy.

It was just a dupli color clear coat, it can be found at most auto part stores.
