Ive had my coilovers on for about 2 months now. I have the fronts maxed out but I still want to go lower. I have like an inch of wheel gay in the front and I'm tucking like a half inch of tire in the rear. I still have so many threads showing on the sleeve in the front but the sleeve has already hit the bottom and I was wondering would it be bad if i dropped the top 2 collars a few threads so i can lower it more? I know doing that messes with the spring preload but i want to make sure it's ok to do before I do. And they are megan racing street coilovers on my 99 nb miata

Ok so your saying nothing will mess up if I drop the two top collars? Or are you saying that it wont drop the car any lower even if i drop the spring perch collars?

yes nothing will happen if you drop the two collar. Everything stays the same.

Make marks with a Sharpie so if you want to readjust, you can have a reference point. Also I'm assuming you know how to roll fenders, but if not, there a couple threads and videos on here. Use the search button and check Googs for some DIY vids.

...and heatguns are hot, mmkay?
