Its a complicated install on the rear tat will involve chopping out a section of ur rear coilover sleve out and welding once you do this there is no going back I am currently running uas aeros on ez streets the front is easy no modding to be done but uas does sell a top hat to reduce bagg rubbing on arm

So how is the bag mounted on the coilover with a bag bracket I'm guessing ?
If so are these the ones I need

The stock suspension sit our oem sprins at the bottom meaning closer to the lower control arm coilovers such as Megan's ez street bring then spring back on top so if u were to try to just replace the spring with bag the bag will hit the inner well before you even reach your mounting points so the reason u cut the lower coil sleeve is to bring the whole coil with bag lower where it won't hit tat tube pretty much replaces the piece your chopping off think off it as a spacer

Sorry for all the questions Advil lol, one last one for the rears do you cut off the ball joint on the bottom and fit it onto that rear bracket you posted up earlier. Or do I only cut a portion of the sleeve and get it welded back

On your sleeve u have 2 holes that are pretty much windows I guess there there for no reason have the shop cut the sleeve right in the center of those holes keep the sleeved part with threads on the inside the chop the rest of the sleeve off till ur just left wit a with a flat spot on and reweld that threaded sleeve onto the flat left over and ir done (note remove the bushings via a press cause hot aluminum will melt them welding
