So I got my springs and rear suspension in today too.
One upper strut mount came apart but I rebuilt it. And its weird one corner is way lower then the others. I'll have to look into that. Any one have that? its the pass rear corner. Jrdsky59- The drop looks good. I know I'm happy with mine. hope u are too.

It looks nice by the way. It doesn't feel as harsh as you would expect

Seated right on the isolator flipped the springs the other way around. Installing like this. Tighter coils on bottom. Is this correct?

That is most definitely how they seat on the rear axle. Should clear up your issue. Should definitely trim the bump stops as well. I had to. Took the little NVH I was having right away.

Very good man. You should have no issues. I forgot, do you have an adjustable panhard rod?

Beautiful man. Remember, it's gunna settle a bit as well. Is the rear end shifted at all to the driver side? It should be. That's what the panhard rod will correct.

You still have some fender gap in there, it'll be all but gone once the springs settle.

Yeah, the panhard rod, should cure that once it comes in and you install it.

What panhard bar did you end up going with? I got my SR springs when they were on sale for $99 but I've been waiting to put them on till it warms up and I get an adjustable panhard bar.

Glad to hear that the SR is a good product. That's the one I was looking at, since it's one of the cheapest, I just wasn't sure of the quality.

Well, it has been constantly questioned on here because of that exact reason. But I'd say for a daily driver, it fits the bill.

I was considering the sr or the bmr since it isn't much more and people seem to think it's pretty durable

It's really up to you man. Most people here will swear by BMR, and for good reason. I have a few BMR parts myself.

Hey jr,

Although you don't have to worry about damage to your car or anything like that, you do have them installed upside down.

The more compressed coils should go on the bottom and the coils with the more spacing between them should go on top.

This is definitely a common mistake and there will be no long term ill-effects to your car, but I would definitely get them flipped.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

-Will

I flipped them yesterday and I trimmed the bump stops. Also the j and m adjustable Panhard bar do I adjust with the car lifted or am I OK with the car sitting normal.

Hey Jr,

I would definitely recommend cutting the bump stops in half to prevent bottoming out on them, should definitely help you get a great ride and is a quick, 5 minute mod!

Hey Canes,

You will love the SR Springs! They are the best bang for the buck you can get and definitely hang in there with all of the top companies. These progressive springs ride great, install easily, and don't burn a a hole in your wallet!


If anyone has any questions, feel free to reach out!

Already done. Did this yesterday when I flipped the springs. No noises coming from the rear any more! Just need a little help on how to adjust the ph bar. Car lifted or car sitting?
