I am trying to put on my coilovers today and i have my whole front end disassembled! But I put my coil springs side by side and the new 450 pound OBX springs are 7" shorter than my stock springs! Is this going to work? It wont lower my car 7" will it?

my FK springs were ALOT shorter than stock and it didn't lower my car that much. I wouldn't worry if I were you. Just slap them on*th-up*

.....because you didn't install them correctly. You're not supposed to be place the OBX sleeves ontop of the stock spring perches. I saw the install job on Lee's car.

p.s. BoBimmer... I PM'd you.

jack it BACK UP, and put thin pieces of wood, to sorta create STAIRS under your tires then lower the jack and roll off the wood!

But i do have one more quesion who knows where i can get the shock cap things(metal treaded cap that holds the shock in) that are smaller than the stock ones so it will fit these new thinner coils?? THANX AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!
