ugh..... I really dont feel like chasing bearings, will have to be real careful when doing the install. Did you guys do it on your own or have a friend to help?

I had a friend help but he had done it before so he basically just made sure I was doing everything right but I did it. And I would say about 6 inches off but I don't have a tape measure

Got these in today. Car looks allot more aggressive now. Install went well and I didn't need spring compressors (I used an old trick using a jack under the arm to slowly lower the spring). The hardest part was getting the 21mm nut back on the front. Ended up having the girlfriend tighten the nut as I compressed the spring by hand just slightly. Other than that it was easy as long as you have the correct tools

Did you get some poping just after you installed your springs? I just went on a short ride and i could hear what sounded like metal on metal popping noises. I was also going to ask how manny threads you had showing above the 21mm bolt on the strut tower.

I didn't get any popping you probably didn't tighten them down enough, you have to hit it with a air gun or it will probably be too loose.

Here is how I sit now... I put the car on stands and adjusted a few things and it seems to have done the trick. I got that nut on pretty tight but I'm not sure how to get it ant tighter because the strut tower just spins when I turn it... Anyways, it all seems to be fine now...

Posted this in the wrong thread...

That looks really sweet and it sits really well! You have to hit it with an air gun because you can't physically spin it fast enough. But if you don't have any problems your probably ok!
