Honestly not that bad. I might go drop each side down one turn and see if that helps the angle

You can see in those pics that your inner boot fins are already rubbing a ring around them. They will eventually wear through and that's what you don't want. Either drop it down a lil bit or slide your boots down a lil

I ended up dropping the passenger side down one turn and sliding the CV boot a little.

And the sides settled a little bit when I was driving it. I'm no longer at 24". Now 23 and 22.5

Im debating whether I should just get the fox set instead of kings and swap the coils

Removing your sway bar will make it smoother as will lowering them.....I wouldn't mess with the coils! A longer coil could cause more binding on compression. I'd double check first!

On my Icons it was pretty easy. If I took out all the preload, I could take out the bottom coil mount and slide the coil right off the shock. When I put the 14'' King spring on, I had a shop compress the coil and slide on the bottom coil mount. It took like 5 min so I'd say it was really easy. I'm not sure if Fox or King coilovers would gbe different though.
