Default Coilover install - What should I tell the shop?

So I decided to have my shop install my coilovers instead of myself, so I'm wondering what exactly I should tell them in terms of what to be careful for when installing them. I know the AFS sensor(s) is in the front so what should I say concerning that? Is there anything else I should tell them?

Thanks.

AFS sensor are linked to the rear sway bar on the left hand side. Just make sure they put it back the way it was to avoid afs light to come on

Oh I thought the sensor was in the front, thanks for clarifying that.

I'm getting BC Racing coils in 14/10.

Almost. They're both on the left. This thread has all the information your shop might need to get this right.

I didn't mention anything to my shop and they did a great job. Just use a reputable place that works on Lexus' and they shouldn't have any issues.

If they are adjustable... have them put them in the middle settings and you can gauge if you want stiffer or softer from there
