Reinstall Megan spring and adjust with adjust side up, make sure to reuse the factory rubber pads:

Remove the stock upper bolt, in the Flex it's underneath these cubbies. To remove the cubby remove the 4 screws then lift the front of it up while spinning the rear out from under the lip in the back. It took is a couple of minutes to figure out how to get that done.

Remove the nut under the flaps:

Remove the factory rubber from the top nut

Re-use the factory ruber and install on the shock, the bottom rubber goes under the car, the top rubber then is installed from the top of the car with the nut and washer.

Reinstall the factory bolt and utilize the new nut supplied from Megan. For my car the nut was not the same size as the factory bolt so I had to go pick up a new one, we did not get the size of the nut but I will inform Megan so they know.

Front strut time!

OK I didn't get a picture of the front dissembly but it was not fun at all. The left side we tried to just force down the front suspension once the strut was unbolted, eventually it worked but not a clean way.

Correct way:
Remove axle nut
Remove control arm to spidle nut
Remove control arm to steering linkage
Remove spindle to strut bolt in the rear.
To make the whole assembly lighter, remove the brake caliper from the spindle, now pull down on A arm and pull the spindle off of the axle and the bottom of the strut.
Remove 4 nuts holding stock strut.
Install Megan coilover into the spindle and reinstall the spindle on the car.
Push Megan coilover up through the top holes and install new nuts.

For my car the Megan hole for the factory sway bar linkage was too small, we had to drill it out with a 9/16 bit. - I will inform them of this, either bigger hole or supply a new bolt that fits.

Remove the sway bar end link from the strut.

This is how the car sat on 17" wheels with 26" tall tires, The rear was adjusted all the way up to make as much of rake as possible. I'll post up pictures of the car on 20's with 255/45/20 this week.

Better than stock or H&R springs. It's amazing how well it rides.

I'll be putting up the coilovers for sale on my site http://ecoboostpowerparts.com this week.
