Doufg i have these and love them with my progress springs.

Try 2 on front and 6 on rear for DD. It is a blast. On ramps, round abouts all of those are more fun when doing them at high speeds.

OK, (and maybe I should do a search. )
What all do I need to rip out of the hatch to get to the upper shock mounts?
I was checking yesterday...
Can't seem to pull the carpet back far enough.
And, I suppose the sub has to come out too...

correcto-mundo

remove amp and sub-box. Remove the Top hatch cover (privacy cover).
You will see various plastic screws where the top hatch cover connects to, I think 3 or 4 per side.

There are 2 plastic push/pull screws that hold the carpet panels to the rear seat side panels. Remove them, and It should come out easily.

I've got my new KYB AGX's sitting out in the garage right now. They're going on tomorrow along with a new set of Eibach Pro Kit springs, front camber plates and adjustable rear upper control arms.

It should all work pretty well with the H&R sway bars already on the car.

I'm going to start out with a setting of 2 up front and 4 in the back and go from there. Next autocross is this coming Sunday...I'll have video and pictures!
