Update. Not even one week after installing. A stud on the top mount snaps. Plus the top mounts for the rear do no line up at all. Had to use stock covers for them to line up. Go with someone else if you were looking into getting these coilovers. I'm going to try and get my money back and get some H&Rs or KWs.

To help others, could you indicate what torque you had the front studs tightened to. Regarding the rear shocks, you said they didn't line up. Could you elaborate on that a little?

My friend tightened them to stock specs. The rear mounts have holes for the weather striping in the wheel well. When mounted properly the shock was 1" off from the mounting spot.

The wheel well liner stuff. It is held on by the round spiked things. The top mounts on the rear shocks go over those. When you align them up, the top of the shock that bolts to the body doesn't go through the hole. Sits about 1" too low and 1" towards the quarter panel.

if you left that purple mount looking thing of the top of the rears on there, your not supposed to.....those are simply there because that makes them fit the mazda3 and the euro mk2 focus.

you remove them for our application
