i have the H&R springs on Bilstein sport shocks and have seen quite a few people that are a lot lower than me, and was wondering if they are adjustable or if there are diff setups available.

Did you get grooved Bilsteins?

Neuspeed Bilsteins come with extra 2-3 perches .....that you can lower the spring seat on...

or you can try ECStuning add-on shock adjustment coilovers..

well the grooved part is usualy in the back.

jack up your car. and look towards the bottom of the shock.

not sure if you can see the grooves...

the silver thing that the spring is resting on is on the bottom perch.

AWE tuning grooves them in-house. About 2 spaces below the stock grooves for the front and one for the back.

what do you guys normally set the perches at with your bilstiens. i've got the H&R sports springs and am getting the bilstien grooves...just wondering what perch you guys are setting them at for fronts and back. if the back is only one them i'm assuming your dropping it down to that perch but what about the fronts?

if your shocks are that old, its likely they are not grooved... you could have them grooved, or get ecs's coilover add-on kit...

iirc the front lowest groove will give you a forward stance. I have it on the 2nd to the lowest in front, and the lowest in back.

I just got the ecs coilovers up front, saving for the back ones. It's a really easy install, and the adjustability is great.
