    Has anyone adjusted their rear height yet? Any tips for doing so? I've got a little over 1,000 miles on my kit and am convinced my installer didn't set the height correctly as I still have reverse rake.

    Initially, I had both equal with no reverse rake, but asked to raise the rear to meet the recommended difference. I could have also just dropped the front more, but Iím not a low lifer. :)

    Adjusting the fronts are not as easy as Iíd like because you still have to drop the suspension from underneath since the adjustment is done from top.

    Hereís a better picture. I tried to get good lighting to show the wheel gap, which to me is secondary to the performance improvement.

    Did they set the rear 5mm higher than the front on initial install? How many miles do you have on the kit? The fronts take longer to settle (2,000 miles) I find the rear settles faster based off experience. If you don't have a good 2,000 miles on the kit and the car was setup 5mm higher in the back than I would leave it until you get the proper mileage on the car.

    To adjust you can generally do so with the supplied wrench depending on current ride height. If everything just spins while on the car, you can remove the lower outer control arm bolt, (supporting with a jack and slowly lowering) to get some of the pressure off and make the adjustment that way. It really depends!

    Cheers Sean!

    Man Rick was right, those wheels really pop on there, Chuck. I love it!

    Thanks,

    Thanks, Greg! The tip about using a jack to relieve pressure could come in very handy. With regards to the installer setting rear 5mm higher, I'm not convinced they did. If anything I think they set it 7mm (one turn) lower. That said, I'm going to check all the measurements before I go doing anything. I only have 1,000 miles or so on the kit so I imagine it has settled some but not completely. I would normally leave it be until 2k, but I have a track day on Sunday and am concerned about the handling being off at speed. I'll definitely be adjusting again at 2,000. But before I do any of that I have to get myself out a VCDS screw up from messing with the rear brakes .

    I definitely understand that! I don't see anything wrong with your plan of action.

    First startup should be today. 60 miles engine break in then swap out the break in oil; then 700 miles of driving to break in the clutchpacks on a conservative 700whp tune. Suspension will get a chance to settle then

    Very envious of your build, I wish I had a Hank in my backyard! Just installed his DP & MP, almost a crime to hide those perfect weld in a place that is seldom seen. Ordered his ECU/TCU tuning also so I can get rid of the PO420 cat MIL. I might have to line something up for a trip south next winter and have Hank massage something in the way of a big turbo into my car :)

    Cheers!

    Rick, you and Chuck crack me up. This was a last minute deal proposed by someone and someone twisted my arm to make this happen.

    If anyone else needs anything in the future, I will do my best to work my magic on other parts. You guys have my e-mail information.

    To cry about your awesome sale is to hate capitalism and America. Iím just teasing.
