    dampers wont have any bearing on ride height unless the car is resting on the bump stops

    only step next is to chop a rear coil out

    exactly that, get an angle grinder and cut the lowest coil out. with a bit of skill you can reshape the lowest coil again to have it locate itself properly on the rear beam.... done

    I no your not going to want to here this and each to there own but im of the opinion with "you get what you pay for" from your ebau link they seem cheap And quality and cheap dont go in the same sentence. I was considering putting lowering springs on but then when i thought if the dampers go in a year or so then i might as well just replace the lot in one kit. Just my 2 cents.
