    Members with YellowSpeed coilovers, I need pics!

    So I might be taking on YellowSpeed as a potential sponsor. They are interested in having their coilovers on my car, however, before I pull the trigger I would like to see some pictures from actual members on how low their coils go in the rear (or just all around period). Currently Im running Godspeed MonoSS coilovers and I am not happy with the lack of drop I can get out of the rears without the damper hitting my ebrake cable bracket area thingy! So any clean shots would be much appreciated! YellowSpeed is willing to work with me on setting up some sort of custom rear damper as well to allow for more drop if required. I wonder if I can get them to do some rear camber plates as well. They are open to the idea of possibly making some custom sets of coils for production that we come up with for my car... but thats only if we can get all the bugs worked out IF they need to be worked out!

    Anywho, please post away... Im excited to see some nicely dropped P5s!

    I'm a tad lower than this top pic now. Tucking rim in the back. But I still had to address the ebrake brackets and space them out. All the way down to when the shock body hits the bracket is like this:

    curious, what did you do about your sway bar in the rear? AWR brackets? that annoying as hell "clunk" needs to be addressed in my car when i swap over to the YellowSpeeds!

    Well, I have a progress bar, and my setup is pretty unorthodox. The bar doesn't even attach to the struts, it attaches to brackets I made on my lateral links. I dunno what you'd do to fit an rb bar, because they're different.

    well ive got a RacingBeat front and rear sway bar sitting at work that need to be installed. AWR makes brackets for the sway bars that position them higher to get rid of the interference sooooo Im planning on picking those up soon-ish

    @Jacki Chan that sits so nice and looks so clean.

    Curious what others have done regarding the Ebrake bracket issue?
