Sorry, I meant binding of the CV's and balljoint from too much down travel.

I'm wondering if the extended length of the coil-overs is short enough to prevent binding. I have read that things will start to bind if the front suspension is allowed to droop much more than 1/4" further than factory shocks allow.
I believe the CV joints bind first. It would be worth putting the front on jacks again, letting the suspension fully extend, crank the wheel all the way to the side and rotate the wheel/tire by hand and check for and bind in the CV joints.

I'll check the cvs tonight when I check all the bolts and let you guys know.

As far as money I have the 470 somethin into the coilovers and about $20 in hardware so roughly $500.
