No real tips, install is pretty straight forward. Initially set them for a reasonable height. Everyone initially goes as low as possible but that wears on you quickly. Set them about 1/2"-1" higher than your instincts and let them settle for a week, then you can lower it more if you feel the need. You're going to want to play with the rebound adjustment for a couple days until you get it dialed in to what feels good to you. Once you've got through breaking them in and got the height you want go get an alignment at a ship that understands lowered vehicles. You'll need a bit more negative camber up front than stock to help counter the lower control arm trying to push to positive camber under load. nothing more exciting than going positive camber in a hard corner. :oops:
