consider raising it up a bit til your cst comes in... its gonna just keep bottoming out if ur still slammed and maybe damage ur frame and uca

Just had them installed a couple days ago, but had to switch to stock wheels because of unfortunate circumstances, but I have the dampening on 16 which is halfway and have them lowered to less than one finger gap between tire and fender (Still has wayyy more that I can lower) and it rides nice and smooth, I love them, plus cornering is a little more flat and stable ...

Took some pictures a little while ago of the new setup, and i'll take a few more in a bit, but since my last post I raised the height up about an inch because I need to replace the hub bearing for my driverside rear brakes and I'm trying to make it a little easier ...









This is with stocks, I'll have my rims back on and the car re-lowered as soon as I fix the bearing and get my new tires mounted and balanced

About how stiff/soft are you guys on your Megans, I have a pretty bouncy ride. Not sure if the spring rate was messed with, but have been tweeking the stiffness and cant get it just right.

They have 32 levels of dampening and I have mine at 16 all around, It's nice and stiff how I wanted but nothing unbearable, and on smooth surfaces i feel like I'm still on the stock suspension

-the best part is that the car doesnt roll like a boat anymore, turns that I used to take at 15 mph where i felt i was gonna fly out the side of the car I can now take at about 25 - 30 nice and flat with no problems

When I am on the freeway it rides nice. In town where the roads are not so good, it is really bouncy at about 45mph and slower
