    TBH I think if you had coilovers on the front and no drop at all on the back you'd run a serious risk of looking like a pillock.

    If you're going to do it, why not do it all round? The rears are a doddle to do compared to the fronts.

    Right...

    Coilovers need to be fitted all round, dont bother with anything else.. The car would be dangerously unstable!!!(Alot harder on the front than rear!!)

    The coilover kit should come with...

    2 x Front Coilover Strut Assembly(Spring and Shock as one unit)
    2 x Rear Springs
    2 X Rear Height adjustable platforms
    2 x Rear Shock absorbers
    2 x Height Adjustment keys
    1 x Can of lubrication spray

    If any of the above are missing, i'd walk away...

    Who are they made by out of interest???

    The rears are not a coil over as such, although they are fully height adjustable. Basically you fit the rear shock as per normal, then fit the rear spring as per normal, but where the reasr spring meets the locating bit on the chassis, you put the height adjuster in there, and the just raise/lower it as you see fit..

    Now, when you fit them, you need to decide how low you want the car.. i wanted the car Max Low from the start, so just would the platforms right down from the start, if you dont, make sure you count how many turns you wind the first platform up/down by, and mae sure all four platforms are the same amount of turns down, or it will be uneven..
