I got my coilovers installed and I'm looking to adjust them and I want to make sure I'm doing it the right way.
My rear is pretty slammed with the fender tucking over the tire while there's about a 1/2" gap in the front. I'm looking to raise the rear.
Adjusting the Front:
Rather easy and straight forward.
Loosen the lower lock ring. Using the spanner wrenches that comes with the kit, turn the upper spring seat (2a) counter clock-wise (right to left) to lower or the lower lock ring (2b) clock-wise (left to right) to raise the vehicle. Tighten lower lock ring.
Adjusting the Rear:
More complicated than the front.
Loosen collar on strut. Turn strut by hand. Turn cartridge right to raise, left to lower. Tighten Strut Collar.
Loosen top collar, bring it to the top. Then, with the lower collar you turn it down (clockwise?)
to raise your car and up to lower (counter-clockwise?)
Is this correct?
At what point will I need to pre-load the rear spring again?
Is there any way of knowing how much my car will drop by turning the threads in the lower strut/spring perch?
Say I want to raise my rear 1/2" how many turns should I turn the strut and spring perch?
Do I turn the strut and spring perch the same exact amount of turns? (I will put a piece of tape or post-it to record how many turns I've done.
