    Decided to pull the trigger on a set of Ohlins R/T with 12Kg Swift springs, best thing I ever did! Car handles like a dream, especially noticeable when turning hard right, to hard left the cars just responds beautifully! I have my dampers a bit softer than most 10-11 clicks from softest. This kit is just quality beyond words. The only slight issue I had was the damper was at softest setting, I took the adjuster off the top and the Allen insert came out with adjuster and I lost it for a hour, just be sure to check when taking off adjuster.

    Here is the Kit (I also got new tophats and endlinks from HP Autosport):

    I made a big mistake of putting the seal where the spring meets the adjuster (other coilovers I had did this) and had to take the rear springs back out to fix it LOL!!

    Brake dust shields got on my nerves so they are gone:

    How the car sits (I adjusted it high so it had room to settle).

    Nice work on the tool.
    My previous shop destroyed my Konis using probably a visegrip.

    Silly me, and I thought Ohlins only made motorcycle stuff. They're right up the road from me and is having an open house today, and I'll have to be stuck here with a real job teaching people about Vegetables.

    Very nice, you can do mine next. I'll bake you cookies or something.
