Well, the fronts anyway...
I was hoping to get the rears first, for this Sunday's AutoCross event.
I'm not too keen on tightening up only the front at this point in time,
so I'll probably wait till Monday when the rear shocks are due in,
and swap everything at the same time.

Ordered from Tire Rack.
$130 ea plus $12.75 shipping.
Strut part numbers:
RF - 733036
LF - 733037

The struts adjust from the top. That's what the screwdriver is for.
Setting 1 feels pretty close to the stock SVTF struts.
Setting 4...wo! I can barely push it down.
Can't wait to get all 4 on. [:D]

Nothing a spray can can't fix....but I know you wouldn't have the patience to let the paint dry before you would want to use them! Ah hell...some contrasting colors are meant to look good.

The red adds 5 hp.

What springs are you going to use with them?

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... [mad]

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!
