How to Install MaxpeedingRods Coilovers on 1st Gen Honda Fit 2007-2008

#maxpeedingrods sent me a set of coilovers to install on my 2007 Honda Fit Sport (GD)
As always, I did not accept any payment from the manufacturer for this video, so expect an honest review. They do handle well for the cheap price (~$300) although very stiff over bumpy Ohio roads. However, they were not a direct fit and did need to be slightly modified to fit my car.
