is it hard to adjust it?
and once you lowered the car...the space between car and rim is narrower...how your hands gonna fit it and adjust it? i am talking about the GC coilover here...
does it feel BUMPY after installed?
how is the performance of GC coilover?
thx...

Not to nitpick but isn't it just the springs on the coilovers that are made by Eibach.

you would have to jack it up and take the tire off to get to it on the front, but on the rear i believe if you have wheels like mine you should be able to reach in there

i am not a fan of coilover sleeves(not true coilovers). Most use progressive springs and the lower you go the more you change your spring rate. If you get true coilovers(i.e. tein jc ) they come with linear rate springs same rate through the entire suspension travel. they are not cheap but they are the best you can get.
