So you can for the rears you can install the rings at the top and adjust them from there?

Seems like the bottom rings would be hard to access to adjust.

Anyone here with harsh winters tried adjusting them before?

Wondering if anyone has any long term review/comments to make about the sonic S1 with camber plate?

I have been talking to ray about buying an S1 set. I was going for Prokit-FSD but dont want to go that low and have issues with irregular dampening.

That being said I dont want a hard / crashy ride.

Keen for any comments on the S1 as a daily driver - especially at the softer setting (5 or less) which I am likely to use.

appreciate any and all comment before I pull the trigger-age!

I installed the Sonic Tuning S1's two days ago. The problems I ran into are the lack of detail in the owners manual/install guide. The biggest help for me was the ECS tuning ST coil over install. I'm still left with questions on the install. After I get a final ride height and questions answered I'll post my immpresions on the ride.

I had these installed Monday evening. Haven't driven on them more than 50-60 miles. I'll post up a review after a week or so with my initial impression and some pics.

Edit: Have the dampening set to 5 up front an 6 in the rear.
