You don't need the cutout. Without it though, you'll have to drop the struts to make camber adjustment. This is the case for ANY camber plate top hats that come on coilovers. The only plates that you wouldn't would be the ones by ground control, but they are designed for the OEM springs/struts.Do you guys think that the cutout will be necessary for the end product, or is this something that may get remedied for the final release?
Cutting out the top of the strut tower is not technically necessary for any coilovers, MFactorys included. It allows one to reach all the adjustments from the top without removing the strut. All coilovers currently are designed this way so it's something they won't/can't change. It's a nice to have and easy to do, so we did it.Do you guys think that the cutout will be necessary for the end product, or is this something that may get remedied for the final release?
It really isn't that hard of a task to do. Just seems daunting as you're cutting into the frame, but all your doing is removing some excess metal.Copy that. Thanks guys. It doesn't look like that bad of a process, I'm just not experienced with such things. I have some friends who are, though!
Honestly, though, I don't expect I would be changing things once I got 'em how I like 'em.
If anyone is on the fence, I can say without a doubt you won't be disappointed. These are fantastic. After riding in my car, @[email protected] will be changing from his KWs to these coilovers for good.Production on the 2nd batch will be starting very shortly. If you're interested in a set at the special pre-order price, PM me asap
Hah, Red is a nickname that was given to me back when I was heavily involved in the mustang club. I drove a Race Red '11 5.0 and my name is quite similar to a whiskey....
