      i bought mine for handling, so i have them set really stiff....18 in the rear and 14 in the front, and it handles awesome, the rides deffinately stiff, but thats ONLY because i have them set so high. for being set so high tho, they still ride really well, and id imagine they ride really nice set at a lower dampener setting front and back.

      That was my head last night. I am going to double check the installation today and then these coils will be coming off.

      Still working on it..
      It rides pretty well on normal roads, but a little dippy/ bouncy, but not bad... at was expected.
      On rough highway, I can't get a setting that doesn't destroy me. Unfortunately, all of the highways here are bad and I do 98% of my daily driving on them ( i live a mile from the entrance and work a mile from the exit. )
      I work full time and go to law school in the evenings, so I don't exactly have time to mess with these. If I can't get it within the next week or two.. I will probably be ditching them for a safer stock-ish height setup.
      I just don't understand what could be wrong.

      what are your current settings matt?
      also, have you talked to mike (migs) at b+g yet?
      he might be able to shed some light on the subject.

      I spent about an hour back and forth while i was under the car talking to Mike.
      The rear is on 9 dampening the shock is fixed at 25mm and the spring is all the way up (highest setting).
      The fronts are about 3/4" up from the bottom of the housing and the spring was brought down (per mike's instruction) until the spring was loose and then I tightened it so the spring was just tight.
      I've been between 0 and 9 so far and this afternoon I will go stiffer then 9, to get a feel for it.
      Before the front spring was left alone and the height was basically at the bottom or a 1/4" up and I went from 0-18 and didn't enjoy any setting.

      no, i mean hitting the bumpstops.
      like on big dips and stuff.
      i only have that problem at highway speeds.
      and only on dips, not bumps.
      i'm almost maxed out in the front.

      If that is the loud banging noise, then yes.. quite often, but not on dips.

      Is anyone able to go lower than this up front?
