Default Tein SS Coilover Damper Adjustment

hey guys, is there a way of adjusting the dampers in the rear on these w/o having to take them off? I tried going through the trunk, but it's all blocked off in there unlike other cars i've seen them on. And also no cutting of any metal. thanks

Take off rear deck cover and the top seat belt rollers, you'll see the top of your rear shocks

I wish I took pics when I had all that apart. It's very easy actually!! Our rear deck is attached with clips. Pop each one slowly so you don't break any, and once it's completely off, you'll see each seat belt roller for the sides seat belts. Each one has 1 or 2 bolts that you'll need to take off.

Once those bolts are off, move the rollers out of place to the side & look into that square opening. You'll see the top part of your shock.

I'll try to play around with my rear deck cover today and take pics, hopefully that gives a better explanation.

lol well if your car isnt too bouncy in the back, then you don't need to worry about it.

Best way to test it is to bring a girl in the back seat and see how it goes at least thats what I do.

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lol good one champ!!!
Ima make sure its fully "stiff" because when they first installed it i doubt they had it set to fully stiff to prevent it from blowing since it was brand new.
