Default JDM Coilovers

Just installed a set last night and thought i would give my 2 cents worth on them for anyone that has been looking to buy them but were unsure.
Firs off the build on them is top notch, I am a machinist by trade and i can honestly say the are built well. Fit and finish is top notch as well. The threads are a really nice fit and the annodizing looks really good. They came shipped in a large flat box so they were not stacked and had ample padding to protect them, needless to say i was impressed when i got them in my hands and did my inspection.
Install was pretty straight forward with the exception of on bolt being put in backwards meaning you could not remove it without removing the sway bar link, once that was out the rest were not that hard.
I set them in the car the way they were shipped but ended up having to come up about 9/16" because i was scraping on the speed humps. I set the dampeners at 4 from the softest setting and was blown away and how nice it rode, no bumpy kidney killer like my friends wrx. Ive only put about 45 miles on them and i am a fan. so much easier to drive and yet its still a comfy gs that we all know and love.
The pic in the parking lot is the way it was when first installed and the one on the grass is how it is now.
