You're not gonna drive it like that are you? That must handle bizzare [:D]

Anyway, congrats on getting rid of the 4x4 look. The car is gonna look sick with the drop and those wheels. Can't wait to see the finished pics.

Looks great so far. Koni adjustables and Neuspeed race springs [up] Did you 'notch' your spring/shock mounts so you could adjust the dampening on the rear? If not, it's really 'cake' to do if you take your time. I believe STaSIS has a pic of it on their site. If not, I'll see if I can find it.

A4 in SC, yea, could you find that for me, i would be interested in that!

Yea, i bought these used, and just kept the damping the same setting as they were when i got them.

Here ya' go. It's not very hard to measure where you want to 'cut'. I used a dremel to cut it out.

Honestly, I have only adjusted them a couple of times. It certainly makes it easy to adjust them 'on the fly' though. If only the fronts were that easy.[:(] I really need to get off my tail and have the fronts converted over so I can adjust them from the tops too. If you want more info on converting, talk to STaSIS, as I know they provide that service. I think Tru Choice does too. Not sure who else does.

For me, I have the fronts set at nearly full stiff (a 1/2 turn away from full) and the rears set at around 3/4 stiff. Good ride, good handling. IMO, the best compromise.

Later,
Mike
