    Well, I got mine installed and attempted the rear coilover conversion and it sets too high. They ride amazing compared to my wornout set of stockers....lol

    I need to see some more photos of the rear upper mount to see how I can get mine setup up lower.....

    Are you using the D2 springs? if so you need to swap the rear springs to the front and the front to the rears to get the height right in a "true" 4 corner coilover setup. otherwise 8"-9" springs are what should be used on the rear if you are using the D2 springs.

    Yep, they are all stockers. I don't want it real low, just about an inch.

    ----------

    So just swap the front and rears; otherwise, get what from swift?

    Correct, swap front springs to rear (longer springs on the front struts). Otherwise i would get 9" springs for all 4 corners and whatever spring rates you want (i personally went with 600F/650R)

    I forgot if you go to full coilover rears you have to change the rear spring rates to be softer to adjust for the spring relocation. I would run between 300-400# rears

    Switched them and it did not work for the rear at all.

    The fronts are nice!

    I had some 450 7" springs laying around that were brand new.

    I threw them in and BAM!

    Looks great and rides even better!

    I might go with the Swift 7" 336s, Z60-178-060, to smooth it out more......
