    Pic Request Max Height H&R Streets Coilovers

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Anybody have any pics of the max height setting, or close to it? I went up a quarter inch but I still rub a tad and my ride is still bouncy (wasn't at first but 300 miles after raising it is) Just curios if anyone has had experience with the optimal setting on these. So far I am not a fan. Would it still be bouncy at max height?

    This is where I started at.


    And presently, at a quarter inch higher.

    I have H&R street coils, but I'm not at max ride height. I don't have any rubbing at all and the ride quality is really nice IMO.

    Rubbing is probably 100 percent due to my spacers. But over dips at any speed really, the ride is bouncy. So frustrating. I feel like Iím the only one with this issue.

    Yeah that's odd that you are having bouncy ride quality. Mine feel just right, not too stiff and not too soft. I do however find it odd that these coils, especially for the money they cost, don't offer any type of damper adjustment.

    Only thing that I can think of that might be causing your issue is that the preload adjustment is off and it's causing you poor ride quality. Depending on how you lower or raise the coilover setup you could be messing with the wrong adjustment collar and although the car is being raised/lowered you could throwing the preload on the spring out of whack and it's causing a bouncy ride condition.

    Honestly I had a reputable shop install and then raise a quarter inch a month later.

    Are you referring to adjusting them backwards, front and rear?

    Edit. Now I understand. I simply thought they were height adjustable only.
