Thanks for the clarification. No matter what you need to access the adjustment knob inside the linner, correct?

yes, you can get extenders that go thru the interior.

Or else you can adjust the dampers setting by taking off the wheel, right?

Sorry for the back and forth questions. I never had coils in the past.

Just cut a small hole in your trunk liner that you can open and close like a book. You can't see it and it makes it very nice and accessible

Are you guys able to tell me what the setup is suppose to be for the rear springs, from top to bottom?

Mine were installed with the spring perch at the bottom and the spacer at the top, is that correct?

That is totally wrong, adjusting perch goes at top and spacer if wanted at bottom.

Sorry for all the questions, so from the bottom to top, it would be: Spacer > Spring > Spring Perch > Into the subframe hole?

And this should be removed?


Thanks

Would you reckon reinstalling the springs back properly would fix that clunking noise from the rear driver's side?

Just read this whole thread and had a question.

Let say you're running 18s or 19s would you consider the extreme drop option?

depends on the drop you ate looking for....keep in mind that my 20's are less circumference than 19's due to the smaller sidewall.
