The rear shocks are just coil overs with 100 lb (helper) springs. The are a direct replacement. The way you adjust the springs is to place them just in contact with shock hat and lock them in with the spanner. This will give you about the right amount of squat to maximize traction. You can actually crank in enough adjustment to lift the rear end, but this is too stiff and you can break the tires loose easily. If the adjustment is too loose, the spring will rattle on the shock and not do anything to help. Its trial and error in small adjustments.

I did not need to reinforce anything on the car as they only come in to play under full accel. The torsion bars are still in place and take care of the suspension job.

I can take a pic if you need.
