Hey guys, can I get a detailed explaination on how to adjust the stiffness on these? I just put on Illumina 5-way adjustable shocks & springs my ride is like stock and my tires squeal when I turn an 80 degree angle :mad: I read the instructions and I don't get the whole screw clicky thing. The guys at Midas didn't know sh!t either. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
I have the same shock and spring setup. It should have come with a silver key. If not, any small flathead screwdriver should work. Adjust the front at the strut tower. Whoever installed it for you shoulda put the little plastic dial and numbers there. Adjust the back in the trunk. There are two compartments to get to them.
Nice wheels NICH :thumb:

I have those shocks as well. If you don't have the little caps installed on the top adjusters its gunna be tough to adjust. Other then those caps missing, adjusting them is very straight forward as said before. :dsm:
LOL, what up Stang, Nice car! I figured out this issue a long time ago, so I no longer need helpful tips on that adjustment stuff. You are actually the person that I saw the Ace Ariuses on that made my decision to get them. See you around.
Hey guys i have the same question but i notice that the little red cap can screw down am i suppose to screw it down? or just fit it to the strut tower and adjust it from there?
