nothing too special...just make sure you have a good spring compressor and some help from a friend. Its a pretty simple install if you follow the instructions and take your time with it. I love my neuspeed sports. Perfect drop out of them. I didnt need a camber kit after them (bonus). Of course, take her for an alignment and check it out. Make sure they give you the printout off their computer. Good luck, youre gonna love the drop.

Yea, i second that. I love the neuspeed sports, put them in two days ago. Not too hard at all. Needed a spring compressor to remove the old spings, not to put the new on though.

Do you really think the bumpstop affects the ride quality? I reeeeeeally don't think so!

First, make sure you loosen the bolts to the top of the struts BEFORE YOU TAKE THEM OFF THE CAR!! You may be very greatful in the future for this information... Also, do not compress the rear springs, its a waste of time! The front ones could probably hurt someone, but the back ones shoot the bolt about 3 inches... Air tools would make the job a lot faster, but I did mine without. Also, you'll need an assistant for small things.

I highly agree with Louse: make sure you loosen the bolts on the top of the struts BEFORE YOU TAKE THEM OFF THE CAR!! I did not know this, and we had to drill one of them out. This ruined the strut. It was no big deal though, as I was installing Tokicos, but it set me back about a half hour.

The bolts that yall are talking about are the bolts that you connect the strut to the engine bay area, or the bolt on top of the strut that you take off to take apart the strut/spring assembly? Pretty sure yall mean the 2 bolts that are around the strut connecting it to the car.

the bolt on top of the strut to take apart the strut/spring assembly...

What shocks do you have to go along with those? Or are you putting them on the stock shocks?

I'm just wondering b/c I am planning on doing this to my 98' GSR w/ stock rims...

I'm keeping the stock struts for now. They gotta last for a few more months, then I'll change those. Ok, I already knew that you had to take off the two bolts aroudn teh shock to get it out. So, what you guys are sayin is to take off the bolt on top of the strut that holds the assembly together BEFORE I take it off the car?

They are talking about those I believe, and I would only loosen them, not take them off completely. I guess they are much easier to get off while compressed on the car...

I am going w/ the same setup with you in a few weeks. But, I dont know if I want H&R's or the neuspeeds. Basically the same spring. Would ya'll recommend I wait a week for the springs to settle before I get the alignment? Or should that be the first thing I do? Also, i'm assuming I should get all 4 aligned and not just the front 2.

thats funny...on my instructions for my sports they said to cut the bumpstops. or else when you hit a big bump, you will hit the stopper...cause the car is lower! so..cut your bumpstop!

My instructions tell me NOT to cut the bumpstop any. I'm getting ready to start this project in a few minutes. Wish me luck

Ok, got a bigass problem... Front two springs are on and went in perfect with no problems. Went to the back, all hell breaks loose. The bolt at the bottom of the shock connecting it to the control arm is broke on both sides now. Don't have a clue what to do and need everybodys advice and help. Please

I have a quesiton. I'm planning on (eventually) getting Neuspeed Sports with Tokico adjustable struts. Will I be able to change the ride height or just stiffness?
