Skunk2 Coilover sleeves

I'm lowering my car tomorrow and had a question about adjusting the height. I only wanna lower it roughly around 1.5 in the front and 1.3 in the rear..because I don't want a nasty camber problem any ideas? Or should I sell these Skunk2 coilover sleeves and just buy Tein S-TECHS.

I am gonna lower it on Tokico Illuminas.

Re: Skunk2 Coilover sleeves

I have the same setup. Tokico illuminas and skunk2 adjustables and even with the front springs all the way down I'm barely tucking tire. You should be able to just set them at half in the front. And the rears have to be up real high. Lol

There straight the ride quality isn't as good as most springs but all in all a good product. I got mine for 80 bucks shipped so I can't complain would not reccomend putting them on stock shocks though

Because if you don't it will dump to the ground. Its different for the rears because the springs are usually longer in the rear but since your using sleeves they are the same size all around so you got to set them higher or you will be too low

Re: Skunk2 Coilover sleeves
