    Default Adjusting coilovers

    I'm getting in a set of coilovers during the week, but ill be at work when the fella is putting them in. So ill have to adjust them myself when I get home. How do I do it? Is it a big job?

    eaassssyyyy, take wheel off, loosen lock nut, wind it down to where u want it then wind the nut the springs sat on down to your desired height then just nip the lock nut up. use a gauge to make sure the spring is at the same height both sides n grease threads to prevent corrosion. maybe a half hour job.
