Default how to set stance and adjustment for megan street coilovers

Installed them and I am having trouble setting it up for a good feel. Has anyone used these. If so what process did you use or setting. I am flaring my fenders and getting a camberkit for front and rear but afraid I may still hit cause I am running 16x8 wheels 0 offset. Need a really stiff ride. Any help would be great.

how are you putting camber up front? hopefully not camber bolts. thatd be a mistake.

if youre trying to get as low as i think you are, there is no such thing as a good setting on coilovers like the megans/ksports/d2/<insert other taiwanese brands here>. they were not designed to get as low as we put them, and the whole 32 way adjustable rebound is pretty dumb because theres really only 1 selection that is proper for the spring rate. Its basically a way of saying "we use these shocks in all kinds of applications and expect you to find the proper rebound in it for the spring rate you received." you will just have to adjust to feel until you get it where you like it

your main help is gonna be getting rear camber shims which i've been trying to get for some time and am still unsuccessful in attaining, and more importantly, using a proper stretch for the wheel selection you chose. probably a 165 series tire, maybe a 185.other than that , roll the fenders and you should be set.
