There is a small rake. But its mostly flat. I want the rear a little lower. My wheels are 17x10. So it'd look a little funny if it were any higher.

Hi B, car looks great and with the manual it says +/-15, but it looks like I need to move 24mm? If so then the preload raised the shock length so much that I can get down to the lower height?

If that is true I need to take the 10mm back out bc max adjust is 5 mm preload right?

Öhlins recommends (+/-) 15mm.

more than 15mm LONGER is dangerous because the shock may fall out or crack the bracket. Imagine putting a seat post too high on a bike and cracking the frame when you sit down.

more than 15mm SHORTER, the worry is that the tire will hit the fender or arm to chassis because the bumpstop won't engage early enough. But...that's not likely going to happen on a S2000.

I think you'll be fine. You're trying to make it SHORTER.

Ah. I see what you're asking. yeah, I'm not sure if the room exists. You may end up 3mm taller than you want at the shock.


But...LMK how it worked out!

Will do, wasnt able to knock the bottom collar loose with the screw driver thru the lower mount, otherwise I could have tried it on the bench to see how much it can actually thread in

Ended up doing stock settings as the bottom height adjustment wouldn't go 24 mm, didn't get a chance to measure but I would guess it doesn't thread in much further than the +\-15mm on the instructions

its not physically restricted in the + dimension.

in the - dimension, it is. I am guessing you were like 2mm short of being where you wanted?

I didn't measure it bc it was getting late and I was tired but I think it's about ~4/5mm ( not sure) from where I wanted it to be, would not thread down into the body any further. So took the whole thing out and reset the thing to stock. I had a total of 39mm gap and had to get it to 17mm gap, so definitely cannot thread it down 22mm into the lower end, i would guess about ~18mm max is all the room it has to go into the lower part of the shock

front end needs to come up .5 inches and. Rear needs to come down .25 inches.

Rear driver side is higher than the passenger side , probably bc I forgot to torque the top lock nut on the Ohlins under the adjustment knob but down and was trying to do it on the car with the box wrench and the Allen key. I think that make have added preload bc it turned a lot more than the other 3.
