coils are finally on! my car is low now lol! not what i had planned but the front coils were low as heck. One of the rear strut bolts was frozen so we had to heat it and use a sawzall on the nut.

The rears go pretty high up but the front still sat super low even on max height. We had to mess with the preload to get it to sit high enough. I'm thinking these front coilovers might come out of adjustment from the factory.

The coilovers are definitely stiffer than stock, especially with the 14k 10k spring rates. But I am impressed so far with the ride quality. I have the dampening set the the softest setting.

this was one of the front strut lower mounts, bushing was clearly toast and actually bent part of the metal on the bottom of the strut, sketchy.

Glad you like the ride feel. The drop is exactly where I want my car to sit... did you I know your wire harness that runs above the front wheels?

I'm assuming you needed a spacer for the front?

Default My New Aquisition

Hi guys, I have recently scratched a long standing itch and bought a 97 LS400 with 108k miles on the clock. Can anyone tell me if 16" Toyota Auris Alloys will fit ?

Thanks
