No, but I have installed struts, springs, shocks, and caster/camber plates, just not those types, what did you want to know?

I didn't see anything about the springs really, or who manufactures them, the color looks sort of like Mac or Jamex, lol...., could be Mac, no way they are Jamex....

Hummmm no spring rate!!!! That is key in determining the harshness of the ride.
