    Yes, the sleeves make them height adjustable

    Do the front coilovers matter as to dpecs or brands,? Will they all just work?

    What brand do people recommend?

    They are too long, the springs are too stiff, and the spring diameter is larger which limits wheel/tire width.

    If your shocks are making squeaky or grinding noises then you may have the top nuts too tight. The top rubber bushings only need to be squished a little bit (how much really depends on how old and hard your bushings are). If those top nuts are too tight, the shock can't articulate enough, and it will bend and flex the shock shaft. Those shocks go back and forth a lot when the car is being driven. That top mount NEEDS to flex easily.

    Between the two of you , you may have just saved me so much time.

    You can drill and tap through the nut and put in a set screw to help hold it in place. I was planning on doing that for the rears on my car. I never got a around to it and haven't had an issue. That seems to be the general consensuses that they don't really move much once set with some preload.

    It's not an issue, it will stay where you adjust it.

    Hey I just received all my springs and coilover kits I from southwest speed.
    One question I have about the sleeve adjusting nut though.
    How does just the one work by itself? should there be two to lock them in place. It seems that just one would start to unthread or loosen after driving vibrations if a second one wasn’t there to lock in place?
    has this been an issue for anybody

    An addition to the ultimate street suspension would be the spacers to adjust static droop in the rear. They are now available at the festiva store. See this post if your interested: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/top...7&share_type=t

    Charlie should chime in, as I don't know if the lengths need to be different.
    with the B3 I would start with 130lb/in front
    And 120lb/in rear for a multi use car.
