    I love mine. Install was pretty easy. The tough part was the UCAs. Coilovers are easy to adjust. Do not overloosen the set screw or you will jump threads and you will be in trouble. When adjusting height, make sure threads are clean and lubed. Get a pin punch from harbor freight (3/8 is the size you would use) it works perfectly. A lot of ppl say you have to remove the coilover to adjust it. You don't. Jack up one side til the tire is off the ground (suspension at full droop), loosen set screw (maybe 1 turn), turn collar, tighten up and good to go. I have barely one thread showing on passenger side, 3-4 threads on driver side to account for driver side lean.
