Just a ~1500 mile follow-up: It's been a couple months and the springs have been great. A couple weeks ago, I did notice a slight clunking noise from the front driver's side when coming out of my driveway and when going over slow speed bumpy turns or dips in the road. I thought it might have been my front swaybar bushings needing lube, but I took a shot and ordered the proper strut nut socket to try that first. I used that to properly torque that driver's side to 60 Nm and no more clunks! It was an easy fix and I should have used the proper tool to begin with (I "gently" used a battery powered impact driver originally :eek:).

If anyone is interested, this is the socket you need: Schwaben 21mm Strut Nut Socket

Can't you use an o2 sensor wrench for that?

Hey guys - Just threw on my winter wheels and wanted to post another update. It's been ~8 months since installing the springs. Since then, she's been driven daily in the city, taken on a couple road trips, and raced a few track days at NJMP and Watkins Glen. The springs have been performing very nicely and I've got no complaints! 🏁 😎
