for those of you that are slammed, did you guys adjust the spring perch? my shock body is all the way down, and i want it a little lower.

i have 16 in the front and 12soft in the rear. it rides nice in the city but rough on freeway expansion joints.

that's what i'm reluctant to do. i measured only 2-2.5 inch of shock travel. i dont want to reduce shock travel and bottom out the shocks more than neccessary.

i appreciate your help gs300tom.

im confused some people seem to love the megans and think they are the best but others are saying they are cheap because they arent that good, i want the best coilovers for my car i dont want to save 200 dollars by buying megan but then get buyers remorse. So are these the best?

As mentioned before, What is the spring perch? Are there 2 different ways to adjust the height on these?

the perch is the the bottom portion of the adjuster part of the spring.. you can adjust your shock body from the bottom as well, all depends on how much shock travel u want

Update please? It has been 6yrs. Are any of you guys still with the Megans? If not, what went wrong?

I currently have a Bilstein/Eibach combo that's on its last leg and would like to get the Megans. Just wanted a long-term update from you guys.
