Finally got low!!!!

The CAR looks about 100 times betta....but the RIDE needs to get aligned, balanced, and rotated......DAMN

Besides that what can I do about the rattling noise I hear when I am turning in or out to park....

ALSO wuz up with the Motivational site for the Koni bump stops and rear mounts ---Its down and I need to improve this ride quickly.

OH and BTW I know AROSPEED coils was not a good idea so I dont need to hear that....lol >>thanks

Lowering a B14 a lot is not a good idea. Unless you are in it for looks and don't care abut handling which is cool if that's what you are into.

The Koni bumpstops are to replace your stock bumpstops. In the B14 in the rear, you really need it because the factory bumpstops are just about bottomed when the car is lowered 1.5".

since their coilovers I dont know exactly how low it is. Im thinking its about two inches. THe ride isnt really that boucy at all. Like I said MY alignment is off and I hear a loud rattling noise when I park but thats it.

I know I need the bump stops cuz every bump feels like IM bottoming out.

MY main concern is that noise right now......

How did you attach the collars to the shock body?

Gotta have them tight or they will rattle like hell.

You don't absolutly have to but it helps. The Koni bumpstops are progressive and soft so bottoming out is way less harsh.
