But the original point is still the same, the kit doesn't come remotely near specs. No matter how you preload, you aren't getting the adjustment that is specified.
I gotcha. Well hopefully vmaxx will resolve some of the issues with the kits.

I got this image from another member on the out of the box VMaxx and this is his measure at full up on 16" stockers




And that measure is just shy of where mine sits on lowering springs..


And anyone that bought VMaxx coilovers will get Ksport uppet strut mounts (pillowball style) they list them (will call to verify) for my cost of $100.00 + exact shipping...(also need to verify of sold single or as a pair) I will call to verify Monday. Jus email me at parts@rebeldevil.com to get on the list

I had a long conversation with VMaxx and they are looking into these issues.
sent from some beach :)

Nope, that compares pretty favorably to the V-Maxx numbers that Justin just put up.

I was shocked to see that^. The rear goes a bit lower, but for 3 times the cost you'd expect to be able to drop it lower. Especially since I am bounce free on the sportlines.
