HOW TO VIDEO - Evo X Coilovers (4k Video)

Hi All,

Just finished putting the wraps on the latest install video. In this one, I go pretty in depth installing a set of Bilstein B16 PSS10 coilovers on my 2014 GSR.

We definitely learned quite a bit doing our first one, so this one is ever so slightly more polished. Again, I'm definitely not a pro video guy, but I feel like this one turned out pretty well. I made sure we included torque specs throughout as well (pulled off AllData). Any and all critiques are super welcome.

Hit me up with any questions, I hope this is helpful and you guys enjoy it!

After giving everything some time to settle, I had the car into TF here in Chicagoland to have it corner balanced and aligned. The difference is awesome. AND they let us shoot video while we were there, so I'll have a bit more on this soon. Thanks guy!

Thank you!

I just finished the balance video we did at TF. It's not really a 'how to" in the traditional sense, so I'm not sure it needs it's own thread. I will say that the difference was pretty dramatic, even though us eyeballing the ride height turned out to be pretty much dead on. The toe was way off and we had too little camber up front and too much in the rear.

What alignment specs did you end up running Joseph? (I haven't watched the video yet, but may be good to post here)

We went -2.5 camber in the front, -1.5 in the rear and 0 toe all around. Aggressive streetable with good tire wear.
