Satisfying transformation: Those wrinkles in the corners are for the cage. First time using the ATF / Acetone mixture, gotta say it works pretty well. You can see it worked its way down through the top threads, and then started working up from the bottom threads. As I mentioned earlier, I was also worried the suspension was already max height (due to the spring perches being 2 threads from being maxed in the rear).. As with every bit of the P.O's handiwork on this car, I don't know what else I expected. #lowlyfe Can't find much on JIC Magic coilovers for the 3, but dang are they expensive for the X. They probably have different tiers and stuff, but found some for 7/8/9 to X 2500 USD http://www.stikiller.com/product.php?productid=16458&cat=347&page=1&js=n Took a long time to just get the rears done.. had to drive to my parent's house and borrow my dad's bench vice / 36" pipe wrench to break the one lock nut for the LH rear coilover free. Bit of ATF / Acetone helped to just use the coilover adjusters on the RH side, but I mashed two teeth on the collar on the other side before giving up on the adjusting wrenches. Installed / uninstalled suspension too many times to count because I didn't have any way of holding it. Fun stuff. Oxidation on threads in the picture was the right side, the left side was 4x as bad.
