well i had my stock springs put back on my ride...and now the height of the four corners vary...is it possible that the shop put the front springs in the back and vise versa? how can you tell which springs go where? size, length, markings? by the way, i had the stockers put back in because my skunkworks coilovers were riding too rough without aftermarket shocks...i'm saving up for some tokico illuminas

Viet it's going to be really hard to tell if the correct springs are in the correct places if they're already on your car. The rears are slightly taller and larger. You might be able to check if the springs are seated properly on the shock. If not the car will be uneven. BTW I hope you didn't pay to get those things taken off

Man I've volunteered to do a lot of stuff before. I've done springs at least 6 times on prelude's though. It's really not that bad anymore. If something is wrong with your springs, you can have mine. They're just sitting in the garage.

yeh i would check if it is sitting in the top strut mount correctly. sometimes if they are not lined up correctly..they will will be uneven. thats why you're suppose to mark it before you take them apart. I also done spring/shocks numerous times on my car, bro's car, friends cars....so if you need help let me know.

btw: how you like them 18" volks???
