      so I recently I installed an ECS coilover kit and the front seems to not lower all the way, you can take it all the way to the bottom but the bottom half of the threads do not make it any lower. Could there be something blocking it like maybe the sway bar or something?

      Does it sound like it is hitting anything when you are driving around? The springs may have reached maximum extension and perhaps lowering the collar will not make any additional difference.

      No it is rather stiff, which I would expect with them not being tbe most expensive coilovers but besides that it rides smooth and there is no noise that I notice
