Pretty cool, really shows the extra pieces these have compared to a cheaper coilover. I wonder how many people have gotten this right without the video. Or do you just get too many emails, hence the video?

Just a few calls and emails. Mostly from folks who don't really have any mechanical experience so they would not know for example, that grommets are used as isolators and are generally sandwiched between two steel parts. Or how a nylock nut works. Not the first clue what the sequence and orientation should be sometimes. Hence the video. It's cool watching many of our repeat customers gradually learn to wrench and drive over the years. Happy to be a part of that process.

lol yep I didn't call you, but next time I get a chance I definitely need to take mine apart and make sure I put them together the right way.

Just for starters, I'm pretty sure I put 1 rubber bushing below the top hat and 2 above.

This was great lunch-hour viewing material, thanks!! I also really enjoyed the post-25 hours of Thunderhill walkaround and the orange beater project overview videos.
