    My front ones were creaking and a good spray of white grease solved it on the mountings

    Ive took the wheel off today and the coils of the spring seem to be rubbing on each other and leaving a mark.
    Just wondering if i have fitted them upside down ?
    Should the adjusting platforms sit on the body (at the top) or on the suspension arm (at the bottom) ?

    Could someone please have a look on their car fitted with coilovers and tell me if the adjusting platforms for the rear springs goes at the top or the bottom ?
    Thanks
