OG Raine's Garage Guides: Installing Coilovers (S13/S14)

Wrote these awhile back, but a few buddies started getting into 240sx' and brought me here again... so I thought I'd re-post my guides for the newer people who wasn't around yet when I was a regular LOL

Installing Coilovers (S13/S14)

Intro: Coilovers... the ultimate suspension upgrade. Sure - a set of quality brand springs and shocks can be all that most drivers need, but for those of us who want more adjustability, more overall performance, and a stance lower than what any spring setup can give you, coilovers are the only way. For this guide we will be installing a set of 32-way adjustable length, adjustable pre-loads, pillow ball-equipped coilovers into an S13 coupe.





This procedure takes about 120 minutes to complete (including initial coilover setup time and re-adjustment). Re-adjustment can take more or less, depending on if you get the ride height of your choosing on the first try. I will explain this more during the installation procedure.
