    How'd you install it???
    Did you adjust the height or use the preset... if so whats the inch low of the preset?
    What about the damper level... preset or you just adjust your own?
    And for the rear. How you adjust it, max out to the highest or just use the preset once you got it.
    Too many question but thanks!!!

    Haha, I was actually lucky enough to have my HB used for R&D at their Arizona facility, so the HKS engineers/mechanics took care of everything for me. I asked them to have the coils spun up as high as possible, and the dampeners are set to middle settings. Very nice set of coilovers. The car is on rails. I want to get a set of spacers just for a more flush look but IMO the car looks exactly how it should have stock, nice and aggressive.

    Also, they are pre-broken in it seems, because I can't tell a difference between the day of install and today nearly 2 months and 2k miles later. I would just set them to high and medium dampening and adjust from there!

    Honestly, the ride feels like a stock. No adjustment from factory preset. It goes 1” low front/back and dampening is on medium. Drove 25 miles to home from where we install it. The wheel gap from the fender looks much less coz i have 19” rims with 245/35 tires... For me its worth it. Just need to get more aggresive wheels!

    No. Its a coilover. U can go lower just the preset is 1 inch. When u got the coilover its ready to install thats why its expensive.
