    KW sleeve-over adjusment?

    OK gurus,

    How do you raise/lower the springs?

    Easy question for some.

    Does the purple "nut" go up toward the car to raise the height or lower it? and/or vice versa?

    Is it the same for the rear?

    LM-

    Bring the nut down to lower. I haven't seen the E9X suspension up close, but I gather it is damn similar to mine.

    Front goes up to raise. Rear goes DOWN to raise.

    You might have issues with the rear, as the black part will spin in the frame while you are attempting to adjust the purple part.. at that time the suspension will have to come apart to adjust by hand.

    Just remember, pick a reference point on the shock that is fixed, and take a measurement before. If you need to go up 1/4", then turn the perch up 1/4. Its a 1:1 ratio in the front.

    Back is more or less the same.

    Oh, and large changes in height will dramatically affect the alignment.

    I thought we were speaking of the front?

    raised it up this morning at the hobby shop, very easy once you realize what you actually have to do. car rides SOOOO much better, perfect height and no rubbing. alignment doesn't feel FAR off put i can tell it needs a tweak. its better than before on all accounts though. bigger tires are where its at. I really think 295's are too big for a real car though

    Thanks Matt

    and yes, one of the rear black "screw" did try spinning on me, i just held it in place with pliers jammed against the frame
