Ok, so I got around to installing them andddd i love them :)

1. We had to grind the inside knuckle, the coil would not fit.
2. I removed helpers and cut the bump stop in half.
3. Took out the rear adjusters.

Everything went smooth :)

It rubs LIKE A BITCH with the stock6 spoke 205/55/16 et52.5 wheels, but I got 5mm spacers and it helped a little.

Rides good, yes stiff, very, but not as stiff as my Bilsteins. Im 21.9 inches of the ground, so 22" compared to 22.7 or whatever it was on the bilsteins, i forgot.

Pictures to follow.

Coils



Figured out we have to grind



It Fits. Adjusters all the way down, & my cut bumpstops



Lowered, without settling.


Kinda settled


The rears without adjusters.



Cut bumpstop

Overall, I am very happy with these.
The fronts have 5mm spacers for the high offset on the stock wheels.
