Re: *Street Edge Coilovers Review *

I Just installed mine this past weekend. Pretty smooth install being my first time installing coilovers. So far I love it! No strange noises. No problems at all. Coils on a budget. Highly recommended. Dont be afraid to try them. I lost my pics along with my phone that showed before and after
Ill try to post after when i get a chance. I also replaced front lca's and rear lca's rears now adjustable

Yes. I've done everything that's on that page. What I might of done incorrectly is the installation of the RSM. What goes directly under the RSM?

You will use the OEM top rubber piece on the bottom if you would like. Make sure the spring is installed right side up

Make sure everything is torqued. This is not a reported issue from other users.
