I got my MM front and rear C/O's in the mail the other day. I kept telling myself that I was going to wait to install but I just couldn't. I installed the rears since they would be the easiest. The fronts will have to be this coming weekend or later. I've had to take it easy since the rear wheel rate is slightly higher than the front. I don't want to pull any Formula D on the morning commute. Either way they seem to have improved the ride. I went from a 350# conventional springs to a 250# coil over spring. The rear seems more planted and they weren't too noisy today on the drive to and from work.

Rear coilovers are great! I have the MM stuff. If you find the rear springs "twanging" when you pull into steep driveways, you can install 2.25" H&R helper springs like I did. Absolutely zero noise now.

So far, the only twang i've heard from mine are from jacking it up and letting down kinda quick. I figured i'd go the helper spring route on all four corners but i'm not getting all the noise i've heard about "all" coilover kits.

I had planned on getting helper springs, but I didn't want to spend another 100 bux and then wait for them to come in. Right now it doesn't really seem to be necessary. I guess we will see. The ride actually doesn't seem any harsher even though the wheel rate has increased substantially from 175 to 275.

It definately feels like the rear plants harder. Not sure if its from the rate or relocation of the springs on the axle or combo of both. Either way, its an improvement.

Any tips on setting ride height?

General rule of thumb(or from what I remember), is to get your lower control arms as parallel to the ground as possible. This is from a handling stand-point, I can't comment on drag racing app's with as much confidence.
