    So I got my car not long ago which came with a set of GP Sports GMaster coilivers installed. However they're super bumpy on the street and wanted to try adjust the dampening to make it softer. I havnt been able to find any instructions anywhere online for this. I thought there was meant to be a pin or knob which allows you to turn however my one just has a bolt. Help is much needed. Thanks

    If your ride is too harsh you want softer springs.
    Ideally you pair your damping setting to your spring.

    To adjust the damping there should be a knob on the top mounts you can turn.

    Adjusting the shock won't do much/anything. You need softer springs.

    Hmmmm I'd say there is some benefit in adjusting dampening. If I dont set mine to soft on the set of pedders I have on the road I get a sore back (30yo now....)

     

     

    you need to use a image hosting site like photobucket or imgur to post on the forums. Not sure if all coliovers are damper adjustable...have you googled the GP set?

    As above, probably not adjustable.

    My MCA's have the adjuster on the bottom. Might be worth checking there as well.

     

     

    quick google search........
