he says in the install post that you have to remove all the rear plastic carpet and plastic and stuff in order to get at the three bolts that hold up the rear strut on each side. I didn't - all I had to do was remove the little plastic panel on the side wall near the hub top (you should see it) and stick my wrench in there. way easier. of course, you can't see the top of the assembly if you want to adjust anything from there, but I just added the lube before I put it up in there.

Well i sowed the rubber boot with nylon and added cv lube for quick fix before heading to miami for State of Stance car show. Ripped open again when I came back lol. The boot holds the lube in place and blocks dust particals, dirt,mud to reach in between the teeths of the axle. Rode with open boot for few months, didnt hurt me none.

considering installing D2s, can I get an update on the boot issue?
I very frequently hit 80 or so.....should I stay stock or look at a different brand?

I don't know what the asking prices are for the D2's, or if that is a factor.

Just reading this post I don't like the setup and installation process. That's just me.

I have had my Megan Coilovers on now for 7 years without a problem. Except for some tight ass bolts on the front, installation was easy. You don't have to remove all the trunk panels, and all you have to do is drill two holes into those panels from the bottom so your adjusting cables can go into the rear trunk area. If you don't have these adjusting cables, you will have to tear apart your rear interior panels every time you want to adjust your ride from hard to soft, vis versa. Here is what RRE has for our car.

The boot issue stems from fully slamming the car down as that increases the stress on the axles a ton. I've been running D2's for over a year now, haven't maxed out my drop and my boots are fine. My only complaint on the setup is about the universal brake line brackets they provide as they are garbage. I ended up just using zip ties and it's been fine ever since.

A 2.5" drop is a good drop from stock and looks good. A 3" drop is a slam!!

With the 2.5" drop they will be able to align both the front and rear camber with no problems. Just remind them that they can adjust the front camber from the top if they need to adjust more camber.

With a 3" drop, they can still adjust the front camber, but there is nothing they can do for the rear camber, it will be maxed out, and still need more adjustment.

They are not left-right side specific, just front and rear.

Hi so I know this post is kind of old. But I have Ksport kontrol pros on my 2009 GS. From the pictures I've seen they look exactly the same as the D2's as far as the front struts go. So I got the rears on no problem very easy. However the front struts are giving me problems. The end links that are connected to the sway bar on the front are preventing me from adjusting the right height and therefore I can't put the metal zip ties for the brake lines on the strut. Is there a certain way that I have to put them on or do I need aftermarket end links?

Same problem I'm having with my ksports. I bought moog end links and now the sway bar mount is right up against the preload collars preventing me from going lower without taking the bottom 2 strut bolts out. I also have a clunking noise. Could this be from the sway bar end links being too vertical and not putting enough pressue on the sway bar? Every bolt is tight, checked and re-checked that so I'm not sure where the clunking noise is coming from.
