Default BC Racing coilver install (sweatfest)

Install went fairly smoothly today, with no siezed bolts! Unfortunately, I had a crazy hangover and think I sweat out 10 lbs of water. Heres the shots from Scott's dads cam:

Old rear vs new rear

Anyone up for some 4x4ing? (3" wheel gap!) Before adjusting the coils


Stellar shot of the day:


old front vs new front

But where are the pictures of it after adjustment and the review of how much you are in love with them?

Blah.. Pictures were not really a priority and the ride height isnt exactly lower then my car already was. I am impressed with them so far, at highway speeds they do a fantastic job.

Looks great! I always wondered about those coilovers.....how much did they cost you?

So....am I'm correct in saying that the springs are that much stiffer to give you a 3" wheel gap when the unit itself is smaller than your old Koni setup?

Vash-
I got them for 985 shipped. I am a newb to installing coils so I went and made them the same "length" as the previous setup and the result was a 3" gap.
