Well I got them in finally the other day and figured I'd surprise everyone with this... and since it seems that many have some questions for it... here we go.

Obviously, first and foremost, jack the car up... Image Image Get into the back of the car and remove the speakers to get to the upper strut nuts, (3) 12mm nuts on each one... Image Then remove the 17mm bolt out of the bottom of the strut at the rear hub. Remove strut... Image Go to the front and remove the 17mm bolt out of the fork at the front LCA. Also remove the 14mm bolt that attaches the top of the fork to the strut itself. NOTE: You will need to get LEGEND forks to replace the RL forks, they bolt right up and install perfectly.
RL on the left and Legend on the right... Image Unbolt the nuts at the upper strut tower, (3) 12mm nuts on each side again. Also remove the (2) 10mm bolts on each side to remove the upper tie bar along with the (2) 10mm bolts at the "firewall" Image As for the A/C line, just push up on the line to have the small clamps let go of the hose and remove bar from the engine bay... Image Go get your new K Sports... Image Adjust to the settings that you prefer... NOTE: I set mine at 15 in the rear and 10 in the front... I plan to lower it slightly more in the front though Image I'm sure everyone on her knows how to reinstall the suspension back into place. No pics needed of this process.

Now, since rocking a LUXOboat without the upper support tie bar wasn't an option, I decided to take the extra steps to do it all. In order to do this since the top hats don't come pre-drilled for the support tie bar, you'll have to drill the holes yourself. Image Finish drilling the holes... I used a 5/16" carbide drill bit and it took me less than 10 mins to drill out all 4 holes. Image Bolt the tie bar back in and adjust your damping settings... Image Reinstall your engine cover... Image



End result...
I was at stock suspension, with the TL wheels... Image End result... Image Image Image

Went out tonight and removed the mud flaps and the inner fenders. No more dragging on the ground finally.
