Thanks for the tutorial. I definitely did this mod and its quick and easy. One thing happened tho is that the 3mm allen wrench I had fell inside and my screwdriver that had a magnetic tip wasn't long enough to pick it up... so I got some chopsticks, hammered a piece of magnet, taped it at the tip and went fishing. Make sure you fish for the tail and pull it up slowly.

The better way would be not to leave the allen wrench in the hole if you're not using it.

I use 2 full turns from stiff on the back and 3 full turns on the front. Turn off VDC and slide thru turns. I think I need some sways now and some wheels and I'm set.

I'm bored.
Just got some konis and don't want to have to jack the car up to adjust, so I'm technically not lurking..

Stupid question here
Just got my d-specs from another member here. I wanted to know if you are suppose to leave the dust caps off when you install so that you can make the adjustments in the rear when you need to. Also do you leave the caps on for the front then?

Default tokico d spec issues

I just installed the tokico d spec struts and cannot adjust them. the key does not spin at all and an allen wrench just keeps turning and turning. I have no idea what is going on and have gotten pretty frustrated. Both nuts and the entire threaded top of the strut spin continuously with very little resistance when using the allen wrench. someone PLEASE tell me what I am doing wrong so I don't feel like I just wasted $700
