A. Search here for answers ( I can think of three threads that tell you how to do it)
B. Done it right the first time.
Man you win you beat me in an internet fight. You are the best ever.
With the front coilovers out of the box and on the car I measured from the ground up to the center of the fender opening. The measurement was 25" (the same as my tien s techs).
I wanted to go a little higher so I raised the shock until I measured 40mm of space from the open bottom of the mount up inside to the shock bottom.
The front shock mount is 130mm long so with 80mm needing to be in there then the maximum number is 50mm that you can measure from the bottom of the mount up inside to the shock bottom.
Setting the front at 40mm put my front ground to fender opening measurement at 25 1/2 inches.
For the rears the mount is 190mm long so you have 110mm of adjustment to keep 80mm of shock inside the mount. I set my rears at 60mm of space from the bottom of the mount up to the shock bottom. I'm going to readjust that setting since that gave me 27" from ground to top center of wheel opening.
