Hey guys when my mechanic put in the rear springs for me...he put it in with the smaller ring end on the bottom...did he put it in backwards? The rear springs are on the left

Lol I knew I shoulda done them myself....guess I will be fixing them this weekend maybe even tomorrow...maybe that's why it's not dipping

Would putting them in backwards even make it lower then it should be? The instructions said that the wording were supposed to be upright...is there a way I could check to see which way they were installed without even taking anything off?

What do you mean dipping? Like not lowering? I don't think that would make it not be any lower

Like here they should be put in this way. These are SR springs the bottom coil is cut in half across sorda to make it flat.
