or like how the other guys may have already said; if there is no slack in the spring, there is no need for a tophat.

i cant complain about my function and forms, they're doing a way better job than a stock shock and coilover sleeves will ever do. But function and forms dont go as low as you would wish without messing with the preload and spring postition

also did you make sure when you put the top hats on that you preloaded the springs back to the rate set at by f2, because it says right on the shocks do not mess with the factory preload on the springs or you will mess with the shocks function and ride quality, ide say set it to the stock preload then shorten the lower mount and that should help if you havnt already done so

a buddy of mine has ksports on his EF(i know this is about F&F) an he put extended top hats on them so he wouldnt bottom the shock out
*the car was really really low(rim was at fender almost layed frame)an the ride was **** UNTIL we took off the front sway bar(22mm or 24mm cant remember) so those of you having bounce problems should try it because his car was bouncy a.f thanx to the sway bar

the concept is the same (to extened the shock travel) i dont think it matters if its on a full coilover or shocks/springs of the brand suspension
