Do not put the anti-size on the threaded coilover area, the anti-seize is typically for bolts and fasteners were there is heat build up The anti-seize prevents the materials from corroding, and seizing together making it hard to disassemble.

ok so just to clear up some more confusion i have, I understand that the front ssp coils dont need to transfer anything from the stock shocks correct? Is this the same for the rears? I dont need to transfer any bearings, dust shield, and etc.?

j3st3r..im guessing you dont know how much these coils settle over a three week period since you got them used right? Does anyone know how much they will drop after fully being settled? I think ima go with 13 all around for now.

Under the arrows on your sideskirts, that is, unless you don't have a lip kit on.

I don't think anyone measures how much they settle. It isn't much though. It's definitely not like springs.
