oh by the way Strombo, how is the rubbing issue on the sway bar you mentioned..?

were you able to see why it was happening.. cause based on your tire/rim setup.. this should not be happening..

Not officially. It's honestly so minor that I'm not too concerned with it.

Strombo,

could you measure from your fender lip to your hub on the front and back if you get a chance? Just trying to compare to mine on stock suspension. Again looking for a little drop, not much. I think this kit might do it for me.

I got the most recent version. I was looking for perhaps slightly more flush, but I think raising the rear so that they are even now actually looks quite nice and I dont have any rubbing or scraping issues thus far.

looks good man congrats.
looks like you still have .5" front gap, but as you said it's even with rear so looks well balanced.

how much compression did you give front springs, I think you said .5"?

what's your rim/tire setup?

We just revised our design, so the front can go a bit lower.

First shipment should be here in 2-3 weeks!

Jose,

Sounds awesome! I have been working with Pat, just got my new wheels in and loving them. Now just need to fix the gap. Really would like to go with ST coilovers since the service has been awesome so far!

I recently installed my kit. I maxed out the front. This is as low as they go. I matched the rear to reduce rake but its not maxed out. Right now I have the dampening set right in the middle. I still have to play with it and go through the the different settings to see how stiff/soft I want it. So far the ride quality is good and overall I'm happy with them (just wish that I could go a little lower up front). Pics were taken right after install with 19" wheels btw.

Thanks for the pictures.

We are going to order new Springs for the lower to come down a bit, should be out in 2-3 weeks.

Looks like they add a ton of room for a wider wheel without them hanging out.
