Installation tips for shocks/springs?

So I am buying OEM's Koni/Tein setup as my stockers suck and need to be replaced anyways. Anything that I need to know I could run into that others have had problems with, any parts or hardware that needs attention during installation? Everyone helped when I asked the similar question about my clutch so I thought I would ask again. On a side note, I will also be installing Powell stage 1 rotated mount/spacers so hopefully I will get better handling and no wheel hope in one day's work.

Stock except AEM dryflow filter, TTR solid rear trans insert. GM upgraded clutch, Napa MaxDrive axles, solid shift cable bracket, koni yellows, tein springs, and the 04 rotated mounts and bracket from Powell.

Factory Freak says 240 hp & 210 ft/lb tq.

Best E.T. 14.549 @ 98.17 mph, 2.331 60ft. (with crappy street tires, and only my 4th pass ever)

For Sale
