Post FK coilovers install review

Installed this kit over the weekend with a few goodies. Install went pretty smooth. This kit drops the front really low. It's set about 3" from the bottom of the last thread which leaves a tight finger gap between tire and fender. The adjusters on the rears are all the way down to get the same drop. I'm running 19X8.5 with +32 offset, and the gap between the inner wheel/tire and spring is just under 5mm, so 35 and higher offset will most likely need spacers. The ride is pretty good, not harsh on bumps/dips at all, very streetable, looking forward to some lapping days.

Does your FK Coiloevers let you adjust the dampening level on the shocks?

No dampening, just height adjustability. Pics when I finish installing the rest of the goods.
