            I've got these all set aside, just need to find a bit of time to go through and inventory everything and post it up. Should be soon!

            I know I know, soon has come and gone a few times, but job + kids = no time to even sleep, much less do more fun DefSport stuff

                Sent you a PM. For everybody else that might be looking, still have M55 sleeves left over. No spring perches left.

                  Hey Def. This is how my coilovers sit after 2+ months with zero preload & an 8 inch spring. Do you think I should cut the bump stops in half or is it fine as is?


                  It was such a pain in the ass trying to get the gland nut on. The tool kept slipping out of the holes or the sleeves would just spin. I don't even think I got it to 30 pounds. I just hope blue loctite keeps it all together.

                    This is at static ride height? I might trim 1/2-3/4" off the bump stop. It's not the worst thing in the world to lightly contact the bumpstop here and there - it gives you a nice gentle bump in rate when they're long like that. When you trim them, you really increase their spring rate which makes hitting them that much worse.

                    It honestly doesn't look that bad if that's static ride height, but I still might slightly trim them. Not half though.



                    30 ft-lbs is probably more than I usually got on my gland nuts, so you should be fine with blue loctite on there.
