    Hi,

    Just installed H&R Springs with Koni STR-T Shocks at the weekend.
    It's going for 4WA today, but just noticed this on the rear springs... Both sides

    This doesn't look normal.

    Anyone have any ideas why the coils are touching?

    Cheers

    can't see any pictures dude... However it's not uncommon for coils to be touching, that's why they have that plastic/rubber coating.

    Although I cant speak for the H&R kit specifically

    My AP coils looked like that once fitted, so although it looks a bit odd, I suspect it's 'normal'!
