    Default Vmax coil overs

    I went to tire shop today and when they removed the front passenger wheel I saw it drop about an inch. I opened the hood and noticed about 1/2 gap at the top of the coilovers on both side. I wedged a pry bar under the wheel while it was still jacked up to see if the coilovers would move and they didn't. Anyone else have a gap between the rubber and strut tower?

    If you mean the gap between the strut tower on the body of the car and the "hat" on the top of the strut, it is common to have a bit of a gap. Make sure that this is what caused the coilover to drop, if the coilovers assembly moved from the spindle (knuckle) then you'll need to check for proper installation.
