Knowing that coilovers are adjustable, I was wondering how would one exactly adjust them? Do you have to access it from the bottom, through the wheel well, or is it adjusted from the top of the shock tower? If I get coilovers, would I need to modify my trunk liner in order to have access to the shock towers? Thanks for any help. ^_^

you have to lift your car up to turn the sleeve bolt that goes on it, and it comes with a tool that helps you turn that bolt

H&R Coilovers Adjuster Picture

Here is a picture of the HR coilovers and the adjuster. I think this is a new type of adjuster HR released. Does anyone know if the way you adjust it is the same method as described by e36_m3_Turbo? If it is adjusted from the bottom of the car, does that mean I don't have to punch holes into my trunk liner to adjust the rear shock heights? Can someone can show me a DIY site or some type of guide that shows how to adjust the height of HR coilover or coilovers in general? Sorry, I'm totally clueless as to how coilovers exactly work and would like to know how to work with them before buying. ^_^

If you honestly do not understand suspension modifications such as the Operations of a Coilover system, then I would not suggest tuning them yourself without the assistance of a proper tuner/mechanic. It can become a bit of a pain when trying to get all 4 sides to the proper height; as well as, whenever you change them you need to get a new alignment.. Doesn't serve a street car much of a purpose as you'll most never change them once you set them to what you like....
