D2's and the new daily

Hey guys, I recently got into a bad wreck leaving my '99 EK hatch in peices. But I had a '97 Acura CL that I've been fixing up. I got my personal holiday gift of D2 coilovers in yesterday and I wanna know if there are any weird tips or tricks I need to know in order to install these. Please give me any tips asap.

No real tricks, just make sure you dial them in good. They bolt right in, just make sure you get them to sit snug in the wishbone mounts in the front, it's a little tricky to get them to slide in and sit flush, that's really about it.

Thanks for your help, I got em in. No real big problems. I destroyed an old bushing and finally got one put in. The springs are settled and I'm going for an alignment today! These cars are lead sleds! Right at 4000 lbs

Glad to hear the install went well. If you ever have the need for an upgrade over the D2's, we carry a variety of coilover options for your vehicle. I would recommend our XLR8 ISC N1 coilovers over the D2's just from a quality and performance perspective.
