Funny enough....the back seems like the opposite. Like it's not as low as it was before. So I've got a serious rake right now.

I think I have both washers wrong. But shit, now I'm worried about these springs. I don't want to go through all this again and have the wrong damn springs/stance.

Does anyone know if there are numbers on the springs themselves that distinguish from the two?

Meanwhile, I'll pm the guy who sold them to me and see if he did some kind of screw up here...

The springs were the same color as my last ones. And comparing the fronts to the OEM fronts....they looked right.

I know the race springs are red in pics on vendor's sites...but I've heard they are the same color.

The part number on the box is right.

It will suck if I get this re-done and it's still f'd up. It's not THAT much lower than how it's supposed to sit...

I talked to the guy that sold me these and he said his was car was only an inch lower with these. So hopefully that's good new when I re-do this.

Is it possible I could have f'd them up when I compressed them? I did it right for the most part. One side at a time but sometimes I would do quite a few turns on one side before I would realize what I was doing....

Should I have #10 on there? It says non-sports package for that part on Tischer's site...just want to be sure of everything before I do this...

highly unlikely.


#10 - the bumpstop?? you should have a bumpstop of some sort. I just reused the stock one and trimmed the lower nub for more travel. but if you had coilovers before, you might not have had some to reuse.

if that's the case, go to the dealer and pick up a pair. you should have them on the rear as well.

OK..this is getting worse now.

I do not remember (99% positive) those were not on there.

So why does Tischer's site say for "non-sports package?"

So all of this stuff together could fix all these problems I hope?
