    I can confirm they do come with everything needed now, just the one front dust boot. I just had mine installed yesterday. I didn't install rear camber arms, the rear camber is about -1.8 degrees in the rear, which isnt bad.

    I must have done something wrong when I had my Swift springs installed, because I have a horrible creaking noise (like walking across an old wood floor) when going over bumps or turning at low speeds. Shoot, I can get a slight creak just by plopping my fat butt down into the driver's seat.
    The front springs were assembled to new Truhart struts by Chris at Redshift.
    They were fine for the first few months (installed in late March 2019), but now they're really wearing on me. I love the subtle drop and the improved handling, but the noise is a deal-breaker. Considering putting all OEM parts back on.

    Sounds like it might be the top hat issue for 9th gens. Take a look at the 14-15 suspension fix thread, where ppl started swapping to 8th gen top hats for the ball bearing set up. I'll be doing that eventually.

    Last I read it, we weren’t supposed to or recommended to use any 8th-gen hardware.

    Well, if you have a warranty. I hadn't seen anything negative on it.
