Any reason you didn't go with a matched spring rate F/R or slightly stiffer rear since the X has a multi arm setup with a lower motion ratio in the rear?

The rates I listed in the first post are off the ISC application guide spreadsheet so I assume that's what I got since I didn't specify a custom rate. I don't know what engineering processes lead them to those numbers but I assume there was some reasoning behind it. Honestly, I didn't work it through that heavily to determine an alternate rate setup.

I let WraithX drive the car this weekend (brave, I know). Maybe he will chime in with thoughts. He seemed to like it though. I'm kicking myself because I should have ridden in the back while he was driving so I could test out the ride back there.

Handling is superior to stock.

They call them "single cylinder design" so I assume that answers your question.

During the first two weeks on the car, the coils settled quite a bit. I adjusted them this past weekend to give me another 1/2" of ride height and it made a huge difference. Any ride quality issues I was having are totally gone. No creaking from the rear and no harsh bottoming out on modest potholes. The wheel gap is nice and even now and I am again quite happy with the setup.

on the Before setup(before you raised it) How would you rate the suspension from 1-10? From a comfort standpoint, since you said it handles just like stock.

I ordered these and STILL WAITING from MAP,(almost a month) but i plan on going as low as you did.

I would say right before I adjusted them, the comfort level was something like a 6/10. Most of the time it was ok, but they were bottoming out on some really mild bumps. Also it was throwing the geometry off with the swaybars and endlinks so I was getting weird noises from the rear end even after I had tightened everything up.

Right now I'd say they are back up to around an 8/10.

If you want to go as low as possible, I suggest doing something like the following:

Set them up on the initial installation so the ride height is 1/2" higher than you want.

Allow them to settle for 10-14 days with a good amount of driving time.

Readjust them in small increments, up or down as desired. If they start getting too harsh / bottoming out, raise them up a turn (which is like 1/16") until they perform the way you want. This might take a few adjustment cycles, but you'll get them at the best point for comfort and height.

Once they're set up and settled in, it's probably a good idea to get the wheels aligned.

Fantastic write-up here. Great pictures of before and after. It looks great man. Amazing what a drop can do. I was showing my co-worker my car and she's like "you want to go even lower than this?" (stock still) ... while she has a mild understanding of cars due to her hubby, it's hard to explain how much better it looks without a huge gap. I should show her this thread
