      took out every perch, adjusters, bumpstops, etc, all possible plastic pieces shaved down to a safe limit...

      since no one seems to make a coilover to go low yet, i improvised

      unfortunately i didn't take any pictures during the removal of all previous said items haha but im more then happy to help by fielding questions, etc.

      but the springs do not stay in when its lifted. even if i use a floor jack,they fall out. safety first, right?

      Now did they fall out before you did all of the mods to get the car lower after coils or were the springs like that after you did the coils

      ive already gotten a lot of hate mail, texts, emails, etc...

      that being said

      the monoblocks were part of the trade mentioned earlier, visions for monoblocks. they were recently sold to my friend, arty.

      i was dating her(the original owner of the monoblocks) at the time and after things went south, accusations started flying, rumors and drama followed. if anyone has any more 'kind' words, send it to pm's.

      this thread will not be the place for it.

      thanks.
