Thanks. I'm interested to see how they react under stress along with low speed compression.

Actually I havent had any noticeable problems, granted the car is a dedicate trailer queen / track toy. IIRC, we did 0 preload when we corner balanced the car.

I would go 12k in the front. Go for a significant difference if you currently have 10k up front and are putting out cash to upgrade springs.

10k=560lb
11k=616lb
12k=672lb

Just put an order in through Urge for the 12ks

What preload did you end up using?

With the 12K upfront, the recommended 2mm. In the rear 10K with the standard setup, I went with 9mm preload. However, the higher preload will not give me the ride height I want so I may go back to recommended 2mm and use the lower mounts from SakeBomb. I ordered some.

I finally got around to full assembly and installation of my coilovers this weekend. I did customize my install with the purchase of SakeBomb rear lower mounts and 11" extensions with different adjustment knobs from Urge Designs. It took some time to get the rear lower mounts so I wasn't in a rush to install (better to saver this experience anyways). The installation was fairly simple. If anyone is looking for an installation video, the following is easy one to watch and learn from:
. I prefer to review the Helms manual for exactly torque specs, etc. I adjusted my specs to get a 330mm ride height (13" all around). I find this ride height to be functional and yet look good on the car with either a staggered or squared fitment upfront. I adjusted the front to Ohlins recommended 2mm preload with the 12K springs. I adjusted the rear to 12mm preload with the lower mounts and 10K springs. Feel free to me if you want detailed specs for the installation. The custom adjustment knobs were just a nice touch in the end for convenience as an access point to adjust the rebound in the rear. The SakeBomb mounts are of good quality with an anodized yellow-gold color to match the Ohlins shock body. I do have some stickers on the way that I will place on them for an extra clean finish. One item I would get is the SakeBomb wrenches for adjusting preload and ride height. They are much better for use than the Ohlins supplied wrenches. I have some a few other projects before I can take the care of the jack stands, but I wanted post some installation pics. They are very nice looking on Apex for sure. More to follow on the ride height, when the wheels go back on. Enjoy!

Thanks. I wanted the easier access. Especially nice when you're trying to figure out the right rebound settings for various driving conditions. They blend in well and placed high enough so easy to reach.

He posted earlier in the thread:

From Japan through Patrick at Urge. 11" with different adjustment knobs. I plan on modifying the rear trunk liner for a convenient fit.
