yeah sounds like you might need less coil... 2" or less of travel isnt anywhere near enough to get any momentum built up anyway

When i put 3-1/2 ton springs in i just locked it up and drove it around for a few days and they compressed. When i put in the 5 1/2 ton springs i took them to a show and started hoping and after the hop they where all broken in. and both where almost full stacks

you can get em broke in, just get a bunch of your friends and start bouncin it by hand then when you have it bouncing as high as you can get it by hand start catching the hop on your switch... but dude is right, you dont need anymore than 5 1/2 turns of the coil for g-bodys

SAME POST AGAIN

but u can order coils pre compressed from companies. u can get a whole stack in there and still get plenty of play. its hard to get a fresh coil and a full stack of it in the car and get some play without modifying ur lower A arms to help with taking a full stack. u can also lock the car up and drive like another memeber posted. u can get a piece of thick pipe and a bottle jack and weld a jig up and compress them urselves

I say either ride on em a lil bit, gas hop it, or get a few of your buddies to bounce the front of your car till it gets going and then catch it with the switch......works for me. Works a hell of a lot better if you were double-gated to the nose (2 to the front).

If you can't brake them in find someone with a cadi or caprice. Those fit fullstacks pretty good and have them ride and clown on them until they brake in. Once they are broke in then cut 1/2 a turn off and put them in your car. That should be enough play to get a good first lick and to get the momentum going that you need. If you don't know of anyone with a car that they will fit then you will have to cut them. But they won't last that long. Once they break in then you have more chances of bottoming out.

we did a 75 monte with 1.25 extended uppers and full stacks in deep cups. it took a good 3 weeks worth of play, mostly BIG gas hops, but it swings now
