You needed to set height before you installed the coil overs.

You’re gonna have to unbolt the strut fork, loosen the bottom ring, and spin the bottom of the coil over until you see it move more up towards the threads.

If they didn't give you a wrench to adjust those rings you best call them about that. Suppose to be 2 of them.

Why not ask the manufacture on how to identify what coilovers you got and go from there?

The 2 upper perch locks are to tighten the springs SNUGLY. They are not meant to adjust height. Take a measurement of the existing height and take note. Loosen the lower SINGLE perch and spin it upwards. Rotate the bottom shock body into the threaded upper shock portion by how much you want to lower the car.

IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT.

You've bottomed out on the tube.

In order to go lower, droop the spring by lowering the preload collars but be aware that you will wear the strut faster and blow it out if you go too low.

Have fun ruining your car and spine. I don't miss the days of trying to get as low as possible

compared to the tension of the spring? I can not go down anymore! it will not be in tension, I do not ask a question for the back I may be so low that I can put the car on the ground, there has not been a reversal of shock absorbers, not springs

I see a good decent amount of thread to still lower the spring, One92Eg6 has an image and explains what I'm saying. But if he can't lower it any more, and that is the max it can lower than there is nothing you can do other than cut the spring which can be dangerous. SIMPLE.

His issue is that I can't drop the body lower. That's the point he's trying to get across.

But yes, if he droops the spring itself, he can lower the vehicle more.

How much lower do you want to go?

The last thing you can do is remove the locking collar for the Spring collars, and lock the spring collar to the height body collar. That is the absolute maximum you can go, safely.

the heck you need to drop the strut down more for, silly lowering attention.. go find a coilover with short strut body. All thats going to do is make the ride even more stiff.

How is this website supposed to answer THAT question? That's a question for the manufacturer!
