skunk2s wont go lower...

welp i put skunk2 sleeves on and im on stock struts. (tokico blues within the week) and my front sleeves are bottomed out and yet i still have like an inch wheel gap or so. im curious how could i go lower just in the front? and anyone know if the spring seat on the tokico blues sits lower than the factory seats? just curious. but id love to go lower in the front. anyhelp would be amazing... and dont warn me bout camber.... its not bad now but a kit will be the next item. anyways thanks for the help if i get any!!

Re: skunk2s wont go lower...

yeah. i know if i take and thread off the locking nuts and put them on backwards it will give me another 1/4 inch or so but thats so minor. i was also considering grinding off the little part that sits against the fork right next to the brake line brackets. of course on my blown factory strut and not my new tokicos and see if that gives me another half inch or inch or so. but im still curious if the tokicos spring seat sits lower...

Re: skunk2s wont go lower...

you cant make them go lower because theyre not supposed to. the stock struts are for one ride height; stock.

Re: skunk2s wont go lower...

Cut the springs ;) naw dude, wait till you get your new struts then see how it sits. I would honestly go onto Honda-tech.com and look under the slammed cars chat box and ask those guys. They know slammed cars pretty damn good. Well some of them at least. Lol

Re: skunk2s wont go lower...

im pretty sure the tokico hp's are a 2.5in drop from stock. yea the sleeves are lower then the stock ones and when you put them on you will see that the front is lower then the back anyways.

Re: skunk2s wont go lower...

well i was riding way too high with them in and sleeves all the way down...then i tossed the isolators and have the sleeves at the mid adjusting level and here's where i'm at now, tires tucked just a wee bit



if that's not enough proof then i can't help you

Re: skunk2s wont go lower...

well not factory but the black rubber isolators that come with the skunk2 springs. can't find a decent picture but it looks like a top hat with two holes drilled on the brim. they go i between the top of the spring and the mounting pad in the wheel well.
