Looks good guys,

Who you guys go to install the coilovers? Was a little late to the group installation @ rmp was just wondering which other shops are out there that'll do it asap without the week + long wait times.

Thanks.

First picture is the lowest setting at the rear and only a few threads (aka few mm) from the lowest in the front.

Second picture is just last week when I got my BBS GT4 RE 's put on. Raised a little more than a cm all around.

I had mines installed at Automatrix a few weeks ago.

http://www.facebook.com/AutomatrixAutoService

Popular on the Z forums. Owned by Ed who used to be at APH. Great service and very efficient, car is on the lift within minutes of arrival and they start working on it unlike some other places (which still do great work, but just take forever).

Rear offset is weak, gonna roll my fenders and hopefully run a 10-12mm spacer.

Fronts only rub while turning at high speeds and hitting a bump. Pretty minor, if I do a corner balance later on then it might raise the front the 1 or 2 mm to stop any rub whatsoever.

But in general no rub

Nice! definitely post some pics when you get it back!

I'm getting my alignment done this weekend at parkview

I've let the coilovers settle for about two weeks now. although they didn't settle any lower than when first installed FYI.

woohoo just got the car back! i had them set it up to have no fendergap and be a little stiffer than stock ( i got v2). although i love the stance right now im thinkin ill probably raise it about a half inch because the rear tires are slightly tucked in. the ride is great too. no more bouncy feel and i can feel exactly what the front tires are doing. was running late back to work so didnt have time to take a pic but ill put one up soon in a couple hours.

also.. they had to add 5mm spacers to my front wheels

I forget what but there's one part of the alignment process that they can't do.
