Help! i lowered my c-clips to the lowest postion on the yellowa which are not installed yet. i measured the distance of drop in the rear as just a tad over .5" & .75" in the front. i already have prokits which i'm guessing dropped my car about 1.25 with my stock dampers. i was told the yellows were about .5" shorter than stck anyways, so leaving the the c-clips in the middle locations would lower my car about 1.75"?? does this sound right?

if i leave the c-clips in the lowest settings, is it safe to say my car will be about 2.5" lower in the front and 2.25" in the rear? has anyone done this?

Thanks everyone!

Can you change the c-clip when the whole unit is in the car with spring compressors, or do you have to slide the mount down the shock body?
Look on the other thread about springs, as a few of the guys there are talking about their Koni yellows!

When my Yellows & Pro Kits first went on, they were set to the lowest perch setting. It looked sweet, but rubbed in the rear. That was running 18" rims with 215/35's and a +45 offset. I was also scraping a little here & there, so I bumped it up. Problems solved.

IXLR8,

thanks for the reply. i have +45 17" rims and i'm hoping this makes the difference between your rubbing in the rear. so now you have it set back to the middle perch? still looks sweet i bet...post another pic?

The stock position (upper /front-millde/rear) is where you want them. My car dropped as advertised ~1.5" total with the combination. If you stay lower in front-prepare to scrape a lot. The rear will rub if you correct the camber no matter where you set the c-clips. The fix takes less than 5 minutes with a Dremel or file on the sliver of bumper cover that is causing the noise.

Enjoy
