TANABE lowering springs

has anyone installed the DF210 lowering shocks on their 2015+ Fit? Any installation tips ? Planning on doing it myself. Any experience with these ?

An impact gun helps, I'm sure you already own one

You'll get mixed answers on cutting the bump stops, I followed the manual and did trim off 1.5 inch.

Car wash = YMMV (not all car washes are created equal)

my spring installation(s) were not of that tanabe brand, but the same experience/info should apply
