How to adjust the ride height?

NOTE: Pics showed are generic, not the exact ones you received. Besides, MaXpeedingRods have different lower mounts for front and rear coilovers like eye bolt style, fork style, but they share the same way of height adjustment.
  1. Loosen the lower mount A. Clockwise tight and counterclockwise loose.
  2. Loosen locknut B. Clockwise tight and counterclockwise loose.
  3. Change the distance D to adjust the height.

About the preload

The preload set is 10mm for most of MaXpeedingRods coilovers. Too much preload will break springs. Changing the preload privately is not recommended. We will not be responsible for any damage caused by changing preload.

How to adjust the camber angle?

NOTE: Only applicable for coilovers with adjustable camber plate. Pics showed are generic, not the exact one you received.

When the engraved slot on the upper mount is set to the ‘0’ mark, the hole position for the piston shaft is the same as OE. To adjust the camber angle, jack up and secure the vehicle (make sure the tires are not touching the ground), and then loosen the adjusting bolt.


Loosen the bolts and/or remove as necessary but do not remove all bolts at once. Adjust [slide] the camber position in small increments to find the best possible setting.

Tighten adjusting bolts (4 pcs) to the specified torque after camber angle adjustments are made.

When the preferred setting is found, it is recommended to mark the top mount at this position, for reference.
