Questions about GC

I just picked up a set of ground control coilovers, and I now realize that this question should have been asked before hand, but do you need a specific model of Ground Control for a specific strut, or will they all be applicable. Also, how come the threaded tubing is longer on two of them?

Re: Questions about GC

i think the longer ones are for the front and the short ones for the back...or is it the other way around?

Re: Questions about GC

Lol as long as it's supposed to be like that I'm fine, I'll figure out which is for what later. These will work with Koni Yellows?

Re: Questions about GC

long should be the rear... koni yellows are about as good a combo as you will get if you don't want to spend over a grand on shocks... should be awesome.

Re: Questions about GC

Yep I have those.
Longer ones are for the rear, short ones are for the front.

Re: Questions about GC

how does everyone adjust thier ride height with thier ground controls?

mine are installed and i'm gonna start playing with the height as soon as i'm able to set the car on the ground.

is it a matter of trial and error? I didn't get a wrench of any kind with mine. I've got allen wrenches to loosen the nut and i i guess i'll turn the thing by hand affter that.

my issue is how to make sure the car sits level at any height.

is it safe to assume that the lowest most setting on all four sides = lowest and even on all for sides?

for some reason mine came (from the previous owner) with the fronts set to the lowest possible, and the rears kidna half way up.

so should i just set them all to the lowest and then count the number of turns and do that equally on all 4 sides?

this is how they came:

Re: Questions about GC

When you look at a stock lude the rear's sit higher then the front's (at least to me it seems that way) so setting them all to the same level would still make the rears look higher. I could be wrong, I haven't fiddled with mine because it is even all the way around so I just don't mess with it
