they put brand new blacktop over this sick corner by my house, but the ditches are DEEP and they left a bunch of gravel there.

2nd gear clutch kick, car rotated fine, but my front wheels hit the gravel and I understeered into the ditch.

It was kinda cool.

got pulled over by a motorcycle cop too because of my camber...

You pulled that way too much for those wheels. Looks much better than your old wheels though.

LOWER.

What coils do you have? If you have E-motor did you flip them yet? And if you did, are you maxed out on the bottom bracket with thread left in between, or are they maxed out collarwise with no threads left showing? If its on the bracket and you still have threads showing, then just sag down the spring collar a 1/2 inch or so.

emotors- the shocks are flipped, the bottom mount is fully threaded into the shock and no threads are showing, with all the collars removed.


spring collar has no room to sag.

after i took the collars out, the lower mount was right on the spring perch

i spun the spring perch up the shock maybe 1/2" and spun the lower mount right up to it, where the threads inside it stopped.

i know sometimes adding preload can raise the height , but it dropped it a 1/2", and when the front was 'maxed' i did the same thing.

now the front can go lower, but only the rear really needs adjusting.

Adding preload lowers the car, does not raise it. When you add preload you make the springs tighter/stiffer, which in turn lowers the vehicle.

If want to go lower, try adding a little more preload. When we put the coilovers on, we left the preload the way it came, remember?

I also taking of only one collar, unless you have changed that since then.
