You can see where it has a little dip in either position 1 or 3, set it there.

I'd say more around 3.... and the spring should sit nice.... ;)

between 3 and 4 there should be a groove for the spring to rest in ( closer to the 3

too bad you had them cut down...... phucks em up, 1 coil is litterally useless, or now almost double the rate it was....

on my G-body there are TWO holes in the lower and the end of the coil is supposed to sit past the first hole and level with the second hole, bit late now though. :)

yeah i was thinking both things, crossmember or spring pockets,but its been like this from the day i cut the car but when i got it the front was sitting low and had those twist in spring spacers so i assumed the springs was shitty,i do need to reinforce things but its been slow going

mufasa what reinforcements you got i have none and was hopping like 35-40" only like 2 or 3 or 4 times :ugh:
