the rear shocks came with much stronger shock mounts compared to the rubber OE ones. it was nice to have them included, instead of purchasing another set from another manufacturer. im excited to see how these hold up. been so busy recently and traveling a lot, so i haven't head much time to track the car, and even tune it to optimal settings.

if anyone has any recommendations on ride height and alignment, id greatly appreciate your input. i've read quite a few mixed methods.

I don't think the rears are coilovers. The body is threaded but the springs look like they remain at the stock location -- the one end of the spring is really narrow, and that extra piece doesn't look like an upper spring perch.

nice setup....i like how the height adjustment is independent of the spring. I wish a lot of other brands did the same type of design. I found out you can go up to 9.5k/10.5k on the springs in the normal valving. Anything higher would require the shocks to be revalved. I also noticed that you cant adjust caster on the camber plates.

yea its a nice little feature. it makes adjusting height SO MUCH easier. its also nice knowing that i won't be messing with the preload of the spring. i found it to be much easier though to adjust height with both fronts up in the air and wheels removed. you can adjust caster as well!

to be honest with you, i really don't know. i don't even know if STANCE sells them separately. check out the http://www.stance-usa.com and look for their contact info. maybe you can ask if they sell them separately.

i hope you're able to get things worked out!

Nice review.
I'm running 400 / 500 springs with the TCK setup, and have always thought that the street ride is more comfortable than the stock suspension; which is mainly attributable to the stock dampers.
Nice setup man... what size wheels are those?
