just wanted to clear things up before I go to install these on my car. Is this the correct way to do it? just doesn't seem too secure.

once you get it there, with the pressure of the spring and weight of the car, it is not going anywhere

Just finished putting these in my car and I'm really happy with the subtle drop and the ride quality is virtually the same (just a little bit more firm).

Thanks for your viewership! Ya I like using the site for research because there's some good info on here (but you always have to verify). I don't post too often, only if I think a video has value for others.

This very true, and unless your car is a garage/trailer queen, I highly recommend you stay away from this!

Mine were on for less than one month, and the springs had moved more than 50% off the mounts!

Not something you want to happen while driving.

Might be your lowering spring length causing it to slip out. I converted my Tokico DS2 rear springs to adjustable sleeves with even thinner isolators to separate the coilover from the body. Been like this for a few years now. No issues even with spirited canyon runs and hard corners.

Any updates?

This happened to me also with the same part # that everybody has ordering. Car has s techs on stock shocks and the rear looks stock.

Yes, i have installed suspension on tons of cars in the past and i was mindful of the preload on the bushings.

I will order the thinner part number than everyone has and report back.

Ok so I went on the Energy suspension website and I found that 9.6101G (for a Toyota Rav4) has the same specs except it's even slimmer. I installed them and my car (06 Track) now sits at the proper height. RAKE IS GONE!!!


For those who care for NVH i wrapped the top few coils in heat shrink tubing. This got rid of a rubbing type noise the coils made when they compress. One less noise, check
