yeah seriously.. Im not so sure how you can make room with the coils still on the car and adjust things.. I know when I tryed to figure it out on f2's it was impossible for sure. I dunno maybe my friend is just bs'ing with me haha. Anyway if anybody is going to do it right, just take the coils off. It maybe time consuming but its not that hard to do..

Only way I see it being possible is by unbolting at least the bottom mount

possibly b able to if u remove bolt on bottom n if trailing arm falls enough you can probably adjust without takin em out. even so takin em out after you do that is only another 5 min each side

It really does take 10 minutes to take the rear shocks out but you may not need to.

I have raceland coilovers and i can adjust the height on both, front and rear, without taking them out of the car...

It would would be way faster yo adjust them while theyre out of the car but if you dont want to take them out it can definately be done. The only downside to it is that you can only turn the rings like a quarter turn at a time and it takes a while but it beats having to use a ball joint splitter on your brand new tie rod ends.

Plus you can adjust height by only jacking the car up and taking one tire off at a time. When i put it back down i always measure the fender height to make sure its even. Make sure that the car is parked on a level surface whenever you measure the fender to ground distance.

lol why would you remove the front coilovers? There is no need to do that

Would it be a issue if there is no bottom ring installed (ring 2)? I took off the bottom ring so that I could lower the car a bit more...Would they coilover be able to loosen up and in result the ride height to be changed on one side?

Bc as in buddy club right? That perch circled in green is actually behind a black boot as you can see in this thread http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread.php?t=361955

Ksport should be a similar design.

You guys ever seen the megan coilover type c? Where the control arm on the fronts is straight rather angled 45 degrees like your typical coilover set? I got that set, and read about it on the Megan website seeing why it looks different. Apparently, its supposed to sit MADD low. Well, I set everything properly, and the shit still sits like a 2 finger gap on the front. Something I'm doing wrong here? And it comes with 4 perches. Two perches to hold the spring in place, and 2 to hold the contol arm body in place.

Any advice could help.

On the type twos I've lowered it properly but, I'm on able to tuck like the tip top of tire.
I've seen people be dumped on the rears of the type twos. What am I doing wrong, or can I just upgrade to swift springs?
