    The back ride height is.. Set it once.. If it's at 29" and you want it at 28.5, take half inch out of the adjustable perch in the rear spring. Yes, you'll need to loosen the lower control arm every time you do it. It should only take you twice.

    As for the shock itself, you really don't need to adjust the threaded part unless you want to set a preload. Which I wouldn't do unless you know exactly what you're doing. It also puts extra stress on your upper shock mount. I personally wouldn't recommend it.

    Hope that makes sense.

    I have the rear spring adjustable perch set out all of the way and it's at 29 3/4" from ground to fender lip with 255/45/20 wheels (I require rear ground clearance because of the driveway is ****)

    Trial and error...as different spring rates will sag differently. Start in the middle of threads, set the car down and check your ride height. Screw the collar up or down to match the desired ride height. As someone else posted it is roughly equal to the distance desired i.e. 1/2" lower = 1/2" of thread. I found it was a ratio, not perfectly equal as the perch is further in so 3/8" - 7/16" = 1/2" at the fender.

    I know, I know, this thread is a bit old, but I could use those missing attachments.

    Well, the Mayans and other Soothsayers were right, the end has begun.

    Common sense is so rare it should be considered a superpower

    Has anyone with the BC Coilovers upgraded to the Swift Springs? If so, to what spring rating?

    I did. I went with Swift springs in the front. I went with 10k springs. The rears are KW progressive spring. I liked the rears ride height and comfort so I didn't upgrade them. Plus it's such a PITA to adjust the ride height of the rear. I just added the Bc rear shocks. The Swift I chose were for ride quality. The ride quality is excellent. I had swift springs on a Lexus and that was the best ride quality in a lowered car I ever been in. Swifts are worth the upgrade depending on your needs.
