Note: • It is recommended that this coilover kit product be installed by a trained technician/professional. • For factory strut removal instructions and diagrams, please refer to the factory service manual, or equivalent. Spring height adjustment: This coilover kit is designed to allow both race-ride and street-ride heights. It is not recommended to run race-ride height for normal street driving. This will result in more tire wear due to the excessive negative camber, which creates more stress on the wheel hubs and ball joints. With the vehicle jacked up and secured on jack stands, raise (clockwise) or lower (counter clockwise) the aluminum perches with the supplied spanner wrenches to the desired height. Depending on which way turned, securely tighten the other perch against it. Lower the vehicle to check ride height. This processed may need to be repeated until the desired ride height is achieved. Camber and toe settings will change depending on the height adjustments. A wheel alignment is recommended after complete installation. Front assembly First Step • Remove strut assembly from vehicle and disassemble. (CAUTION: For your safety use a spring compressor to disassemble strut assembly) Factory Strut Cap Carefully remove factory strut cap. Note: For a cleaner look and increased adjustability you can cut down the lower spring perch to a size slightly larger than the diameter of the coilover sleeve. Cut very cautiously! DO NOT CUT INTO SHOCK! Coilover Sleeve Install coilover sleeve with the non-threaded (bottom) portion over strut. Factory Strut Cap Reinstall factory strut cap Install Skunk2 coilover spring (Part #0500-250-008) Cone Shaped Top Hat Install coilover spring retainer (Aluminum, cone shaped top hat). Aluminum Bushing Install aluminum bushing (Included in kit O.D.15.2mm, I.D. 31mm, TH 13mm). Reinstall upper strut tower mount and torque to factory specs. Reinstall completed assembly in car and torque to factory specs.
