ST V1 Coils installed on Crimson Red E92

Got the coils in yesterday, thanks to Alan @ **********s

Took it to a mechanic referred by NiveDh in Atlanta, install was a breeze for him since he's done so many Coilover kits before. He took a look at the ST kit, and told me the rear shocks that came with it just aren't quite as strong as it should be. He compressed the shock with ease, whereas the OEM rear shock was a tad bit more sturdier and harder to push in/release. After talking, he suggested I keep my OEM rear shocks but still replace everything else. So whenever the OEM goes bad, I have a set to replace with.

Overall, Im very satisfied with the ride quality as the car sits way lower than before. Front gap is shorter than one finger, and about the same in the back. I drove over 100 miles back home and I couldn't be more please, ride is a bit harsher but I expected alot worse. I have no rubbing issues yet, car has 8.5/9.5 with 235/265 with 12mm spacers out back (35 et front, 43 et back before spacers).

Pictures: (sorry about the night pics, just snapped a few shots when I got home, better pics coming soon)

Before: (stock suspension, Supreme Power lowering perches only)



Rears in (OEM shock)



Fronts almost done



After the ride back home, again, sorry about the shxtty night pics













If anybody is looking for a good installer near the Atlanta area, PM me for info.
