Pretty much the middle of the adjusters.

The rear drop is perfect. It does not looked completely slammed where the fender hangs over the tire. That is the way I want my rear drop to look like.

Your just a turn a away if your not there already. That's one reason why I chose this kit. I wanted to be in complete control of the drop & rake while retaining EDC functionality.

The only thing I'm concerned about is that if I raise the right rear the left front will go down. I was under the impression that all 4 has to be adjusted accordingly otherwise the balance will be off. At what point do I need to get another alignment?

This is truly a new experience for me as I'm not familiar with the inner workings of aligning the suspension setup. I know what I want but not necessarily how to get it done.

What is the amount of drop on your KW? It is my understanding that I have a drop of .8" on all four corners.

It is also my understanding that the right will always be lower than the left as they take the driver into consideration during the setup.

Just looks to me that any drop on the rear is going to cause a problem with the 15 mm spacers. Anyone else done it?

As for ride height.. you can't measure height by just measuring the collar. You need to put the car on the ground with the wheels on to get the height and then adjust the collars individually to get it right. Mine was off a good 1/2 inch from left to right despite the collars having the same adjustments all around. I think coilovers would be better in this aspect. Never had any uneven height problems before with coilovers.

Hey, I just had my KW sleeve over installed and I hear this rumbling noise too. Did you ever find a solution to fixing that? I'm about to have mine removed because it bugs the hell out of me. For the money, Im pretty disappointed. I should have just purchased springs that ride on stock perches with rubber gaskets. Sigh.
