    i agree . . i've had ractive coilovers and was not happy at all

    as far as install . . . are you using the stock shocks? and if you are, do you have a spring compressor?

    as far as removal and instalation its pretty simple. 2 nuts on top of each shock mount, if you are replacin the rear shocks loosen the lower shock mount bolt (if using stock shocks don't loosen this bolt) then reove the lower control arm. for the front remove the 12 or 14mm bolt at the top of the wish bone that holds the lower shock in place (reomve brake line brackets) and reomve the lower wish bone 17mm bolt. reinstall and you are done. be careful with the shock washers and bushing. they must be replaced in the correct order. and if youi are going real low cut the bump stops in half and use the thicker (wider) portion.
