I am looking for a turned down socket as well, can you include PayPal info? Thanks.
Don't be afraid to try it the other way removing the upper arm assembly. It is an extra 4 bolts on top and pinch bolt on the upper ball joint.
I did mine solo and I did it with out the thin wall socket. Not bad at all.

Agreed, the turned down socket is convenient, but it isn't too much extra effort to remove the upper suspension assembly! Also, when you are reassembling you can slide those 4 bolts as inward as possible for a bit of extra negative camber.

Finally got car aligned.

Toe was WAY out of spec, as expected. Chewed through rears in ~7k miles :(

I did this myself a few years ago. I figured I got the tie rods pretty much the same length on my Mr2 when replacing them and ended up roasting a set of rear tires in one season.

everything but camber was able to get in spec in the front, so i don't know that a front end alignment kit is needed for street driving.

FWIW I spoke with the KW USA guys at the Monterey Historic Races last weekend, and they said KW in Germany was adding production equipment. Hopefully this will let them get through their backlog faster, and MPP's coilovers will get back into production sooner. (All KW springs and dampers (shock absorbers) are made in house by KW in Germany.) I still plan to use them on my car.

They are investing in new automated equipment, it will be worth it in the long run!

Are these still out of stock?
They are available on backorder right now. We definitely recommend putting in an order if you want to secure a set in the near future.

Looks good. A little too low for my taste, but I am more conservative than many when it comes to stance. Houston roads are worse than DFW, though!

By the way, still need to meet up with you. I will be headed up there either end of next week or beginning of the following. I'll ping you to see if you're around.

Yea, just let me know when you have a date.

Not as low as last car, and no exhaust hanging down to bang on road reflectors.

Only slightly scrape on the taller speed bumps.

Wife doesn't complain, and lower than most, so I'm happy.

Hitting your car on road reflectors is impressive

Well it seems I’ve got damper forks and spring spacers on the way. I hope that means the rest aren’t far behind. Looking forward to it.

You should have gotten a shipping email just a few minutes ago for the dampers!

Thank you everyone for your patience as we push through the production process to ship directly to our customers. This round took less time than ever, so we are quite pleased. It would be really nice to have them in stock one day, but for now, we will keep making them as fast as we can!
