Coilover height adjustment Tutorial+Tips MAX suspension 240sx
In the process of installing the 6kg/mm springs in the rear of my s13 240sx I decided to make a vid of some tips and tricks of measuring. The methods for measuring your coils can also be used when setting ride height for the first time and can help you keep each coil at identical height as the adjacent one. (Unless your car is corner balanced, in which case each coil would be adjusted differently to distribute the weight evenly)
How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.

KW Coilovers Variant 2 on a BMW E36 M3 | BMW suspension upgrade
http://www.autowerksofamerica.com/ KW Coilovers are becoming a more popular
option for BMW and other German car owners. The build quality is good and
the construction materials mean that you won't have to worry about rust.
They offer products both for street and racing applications.
We're performing a suspension upgrade on an 1997 BMW M3. KW offers four
coilover possibilities for this car.
Variant 1 allows you to change the ride height
Variant 2 allows you to change the ride height and the rebound damping
Variant 3 allows you to change the ride height and both the rebound and
the compression damping
The club sport package is more aggressive, but can also be used on the

I selected variant 2 to give me some damping adjustability without having
to manage the complexity of the additional variable of compression damping.
Here's what's in the box.
The struts have the springs mounted already, you can see the shocks here
and the springs were packed well with protective foam that I've already
The toolbox comes with instructions, a spanner wrench, a nice purple knob
with the hex key and this pin. The pin is for the variant 3 package, so I
don't need it. They've included some stickers as well, but I haven't
decided if I'll put them on my car.
For this application swaybar links are included. 5mm Front wheel spacers
are recommended but not included. They have to be sourced separately, but
we can help you with that.
Here's a closeup of the strut damping. You can't see it, but there's a
slight detent feel to the adjustment to help you track how many "clicks"
you've gone in either direction.
The knob is also used to tighten the lock screw on the ride height
adjusting ring, but the instructions caution you to be careful with the

Coilovers - Explained
What are coilovers? How do coilovers work? Coilovers are a common
performance upgrade for car suspensions. Coilovers can allow for lowering a
vehicle, and also can reduce body roll with stiffer springs. A coilover
gets its name from simply a coil spring over a shock absorber. The
coilovers used in the video are Yonaka Motorsports coilovers for a 94-01

How to install coilovers / struts on a Wrx / Sti 1of5
This is my take on how to install coilovers or struts and springs on a
02-07 Wrx. I am putting on struts and springs but coilovers are installed
the same way. The struts are tokico struts with Perrin springs and group n
top hats. Some of the video is upside down but I will fix that when I get
to a desktop. All shot and edited with a iPhone 4.
