    got me some fk coilovers for the avant and although ive fitted them to other cars im just wondering should i put the adjuster platform at the top or bottom of the rear springs for access and what do you guys use to keep the threads from siezing?

    yes to a few cars
    there ok to start with but you can tell there budget soon after
    can cause a few knocks and bangs if to low
    and quite a bot of bounce.

    Iv got Weitec coilovers on my Avant.
    Been on for around 10 months and have not had any issues - I fitted the adjuster to the top of the rear spring.
    Can be abit of a pain adjusting as I need to take tension of the spring before turning - usually use a long breaker bar.
