Ha, you're probably right. But I'm willing to work with them to see if we can figure out the issue first. Right now the plan is to get the ride height where I want it since it was definitely low before; if it's still contacting, they'll make a shorter lower body to try, and if that doesn't work they're just going to send me tubular upper control arms that'll fit anything. I'm happy enough with this plan even if it's a little drawn out.

On the up side, the coilovers seem to have made a dramatic difference in the car's body shudder issue. I haven't had it out for more than a couple tests to check ride height, but even then I noticed that the issue may be gone, or near enough for my anyway.

Figured I'd give a final update of sorts:

DSD machined shorter lower front mounts that fit with much more space—I think that issue is solved but I'll be double checking over the next few days.

On the body shudder, if I have the dampers set on the recommended street setting it's not actually that different from before, I don't think. But if I crank them to the recommended track setting, it's like the shudder happens faster so it doesn't bother me as much? I still have no idea what it is but on the harder dampening setting it's something I can deal with. Sooo, basically I'm calling it quits on trying to figure it out for the time being.
