please explain and help.. ty

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the picture below is for koni installation. please explain the diagram 1,2,and 3.
i can adjust the height by doing that? cause my driver side is 1/3 of an inch lower than my passenger.

i just picked up a omni camber kit. guess what kinda of material the flat washer is made of.. ALUMINUM..

after i put a rough surface washer (the one that with "jaws") and tighten it with a little force then it made dents on the surface of the washer. should i just use it as it is or should i replace the washers with steel washers?

The driver's side is usually lower then the pass just because that side of the car is heavier. I can't see the pics either, but the Koni Yellows and the Reds are height adjustable by moving the spring perches up/down before the springs are installed.

Those pics look like the instructions on how to adjust the damping of the Reds, not the height.

yyeah, it's the damping that get's adjusted, take a look at the pictures next to the diagram, they show how much the damping helps.

My car used to lowered on H&R springs only. It raised up when I put on Reds and an Eibach camber kit (adjustable ball joint) It used to tuck in the front, but now you can can one finger in there. I think it's the camber kit.

What model Koni do you have? The perches can be moved to increase/decrease the height slightly.

koni sport(yellow), it have 3 perches. i set it at the middle.
distance between each perch is 1/2 inch. if i increase the lower side by 1 perch, the lower side will be higher than the other side.

here is what my car looks like now.
