pss9's Installed!!!

Well, pulled the trigger and found a good shop to install my coilovers! Have not had the car back for more than 24 hours but can give my initial impression...

The car is lower than I was originally planning but I think it looks clean. He said it was 1/2" lower than what it is now, and it did not rub or bottom out. So this is good to know when I want to put 19's on there. I told them I wanted the settings at 6 front 5 rear, but they did 4/4. It rides firm but is not too much away from stock. The car was aligned and corner balanced, so everything was done correctly.

Once I have some more miles on the car and if I take it to a HPDE I will give my feedback.

Before





After:

Looks good, try 6 in the front...that seems to be the common setup on here. Im running that and really like the results.

Car looks great by the way!

So you tell them to do 6/5 but they did 4/4 and you consider them a good shop? They didn't even do what you told them to do? hahaha

True, but they said they will make adjustments after I have driven the car for awhile and do it for free!

I just did a 400+ mile road trip and must say, the car feels stock, except for a more planted feel, and less body roll.

I would highly recommend these to anyone looking into getting coilovers!
