well for the msp-i'm lowered on megan springs.What kind of coilovers are you going to run? The set that i have (the male thread) is 6in plus the ball ends. (for the front)
BTW im using Ksports....for now....
link doesnt workok guys as promised the refined endlink:
First off before you say anything yes i know i am missing a jam nut, it was late when i put in the order and my dumb ass forgot the reverse threaded jam nut.
Anyway as far as parts are concerned, its two male endlinks in the 3/8"-24 threading. However one is right threaded the other is left threaded. You will also need jamnuts of the same threading once again right and left threaded. These can all be found at Mcmaster. Looking about $30 or so for enough to make two endlinks (jam nuts come in boxes of several,usually 25, so you can make multiple endlinks after the initial cost). The center rod is the trick though. It can be found at coleman racing as a shifter rod. The one in the picture is 7" long and it is pre threaded on each end for 3/8"-24 threads, one side right other side left, this allows you to loosen the jam nuts and twist the center sleeve to adjust the endlink on the car. Price is 8.75 per rod and your looking at about $18 for them. So all in all for a set of endlinks plus shipping plus mounting hardware your looking around $60ish

I am trying to find out a possible step further and get something with a hex so you can put a wrench on it. I will let everyone know how that turns out.
Correct shocks won't change the ride height normally (there are exceptions to this rule but protege tokico blues are not one)It depends more on your springs that the struts because that is what makes the ride heights different. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
If you are on stock springs then they would need to be the same length as the stock endlinks.
