Even within the adjustable range, car body, arm etc. may contact. In such case, it will be hard to drive.
Damper oil leakage or any other problems caused by low ride height setting from the factory setting will void the warranty of the product.)

Point
・If you adjust the front case too short, the drive shaft and body or damper brake hose bracket and body side brake hose bracket might interfere at a full stroke.
・MAX IV's development concept is both sport and comfort, but we have regarded the comfort more important.
・We have set the MAX IV to reduce the push, noise and trembling and still provide the comfort and sporty driving for everyday use.
・We have set smooth feeling damping by the lower spring rate than the stock for front.
・You have more flexible setting with the total adjustment type for rear damper.
・If you prefer comfort driving, set 20 to 25 dials for both and if you want the stiffness, set it 10 to 15.(If you loosen the rear dial, you might have more trembling)
・The data other than testing is calculated numbers.(It's not guaranteeing the actual number of vehicle height)
