Nice drop bro, I'm currently working on the rears of my car (hardest part first)... back-seat is out and i'm working on getting the shelf off. i'm also in and out of the house looking at a guide on how to do this proj.

Its Going slowly right now but I believe its better this way.

I'll keep ya posted.

Edit: (looked over the guide - don't need to take rear shelf off just pry back the sound insulation, we'll see how it goes now)

the hardest part is to try to get the rear sway bar links off. those are a paint in the ***.
I suggest u get new ones.
drive without rear sway bar links for a day or two, it won't hurt, just don't do fast cornering.

How did you route your rear adjustment extender *****? Did you cut a small hole in the shelf? Or did you route them through somewhere else?

i had no problems with any fitment issues.
I took the rear seats off.
pulled out two brick sized sponges that covered the strut mount holes. unbolted the three bolts and took off the stock suspension.

since my coilovers came with pillowball mounts, I simply stick in my coilovers and it fits just like the stock suspension. I bolted in the pillowball mounts, adjusted the strut setting **** and put the sponge back in.

Oh I see, so you didn't have rear adjustment extenders then (to make it easier to adjust the rear dampers without taking apart the back seat again to access the coilovers.)

Heres a picture of rear extenders that I was refering too

i don't have those sorry

if i were you, I would be super patient and buy the pillow ball mounts from BC and use the pillow ball mounts instead of OEM style mounts. it'll be so much easier to work with.

but that's just a suggestion. if you already have the parts you need, i guess work with what you have.

I don't think changing out to pillowball mounts would work, I already have everything ready to go, rear oem mounts, front oem mounts with the bearings installed this time.

I'll be working with what I have my kit is slightly different than your kit. I have linear rate springs on the front, and a progressive rate spring designed to work with the oem rear mount.

Everything is pretty much ready to go onto the car. All oem mounts are "brand new".

I'm waiting on my co-worker to get back to me to see if he can help me do the installation. He has installed coilovers on his own vehicle himself. and he has offered me assistance with helping me install mine. I think i'm going to take up his offer, as this is something that i've never done before, and having someone who has done something like this before will actually help me out. Another pair of eyes and a extra set of hands is always a good thing right. will keep you updated.

hell yea, it's a pain to do alone.

I had 3 other dude come and help me voluntarily.

I did it before once by myself and it was simply too tiring.
