    going to fit my rear lowering springs
    wanted to make sure i fit them the right way up.
    would i be right in saying the end of the spring which is more compressed (coils closer together) should go at the top?
    the only reason i ask is the writting on the springs would then be upside down and got me thinking

    called HQ today and the compressed part of the spring should be at the bottom on the rears so the part number is the correct way up.
    got a bit confused as some people have fitted them the other way round with the compressed coils being at the top.
    i take it some springs are different to others when it comes to fitting
    thought i would post the imfo for anyone else doing theres
