Now while the jack is in place, tighten the shock shaft bolt. Do not tighten the upper shock nut using an impact wrench, damage to the shock could be the result. We used a special tool to hold the shock shaft while the nut was being tightened. The tool is available from KW Suspension and is a lifesaver for any shock or strut installation.
You can see that the low and high-speed compression adjusters are easy to reach.
Install and plug in the shock module. You adjust the rebound damping at the top so we left the interior panels off until we completed our test drive to get a good feel for the shocks and adjust them. We started off with ST’s recommended sporty driving settings.
We started with the ride height as the suspension came straight from ST but we felt that it was too low. We raised the car up about a quarter inch. Here is what the car looked like after we raised it. It is still pretty low and looks damn good in our opinion.
