Question, new to the forum here. I'm wondering of how to install the Massive omni kit, where exactly the parts go and also have a question about some coilovers I saw. Thanks.

Brakes, Suspension & Chassis section has the most suspension information. New thread there might be best.

Omni Kit is for fitting struts made for the '00-'early '05 cars to the later ones ('late .05-'11). Shim sleeve goes between strut & knuckle to fill the gap since the later version struts are larger in diameter.

Okay thank you, I'll check out that section, one step closer to going lower! Hopefully saying goodbye to that high back end soon!

One is a bit more progressive then the other, but both are made for 06-11, both drop the car the same. I had to look at my receipt, but I have the ZXM1's, could of sworn before I had the ZX3B's. We're on the same spring. Other factors okay into why our cars sit different, probably mainly because my car is on a smaller tire if I had to guess. 205/40/17's.

Here's my car on 215/45/17, you can see that it appears lower if your looking at fender gap:

Hey Willy thanks for the info man really helpful. My tires are 215/45R17V. In the future I would love to try out 205/40/17 they look great. The tires hang slightly in the larger size which sometimes annoys me, but doesn't effect driveability. One thought I have had, if I get the smaller tire size I might be able to use spacers to get a better stance to the car (especially in the rear), the rear of these cars have the wheels a little more inset than I would like.
