If anyone on here has more than 100mm of clearance in the front with an is lip, how far from the bottom was your adjuster? I need to know because that is the legal lowest my car can be and i don't want to have to go back and readjust them

Sorry to reopen this. But these coilovers do NOT require cutting the strut housing, correct?

No cutting required but it would make adjusting them a hell of a lot easier.

Bringing this thread back from the dead, ... but did you ever end up doing the jom/bilstein combo? As I just bought an IS that has joms installed and would like to swap out the blown shocks.

Jom

For the guys with the late models e30, how low of a drop did you get? I'm planning on running a 16x8/8.5 or 16x9/9.5 W 215/40 setup.

Anyone running vogtland sports?

Front and rear adjusted fully to the lowest setting.

Nice ride, what size rim / tire combo are you running? I'm purchasing the JOM this weekend. Did you do any additional mods, cut the perch off/removed the adjusters etc?

^^ Car looks excellent. Mine is very similar but Royalblau and with metal bumpers.

Any recent reviews on these from the people who have had them installed for a year or two? Getting ready to pull the trigger on a set of these, just trying to finish off the turbo build then these are on the radar.

Thanks!

I just was searching through the board because i'm wondering the same question! Everyone seem to say that the rear wont go enough low compare to the front, and run without the adjuster. Anyone know, if with the coupe version on a vert, this will help to get a better drop?

I instaled joms coilovers on my 89 coupe. Compared to my previous setup, wich was stock, they feel better. On front, im all the way down. In the rear, i have just the spring.

Overall, condering they only cost me 250 brand new, i can say thay
are worth.
