Help -front bilstein strut and h&r sport


Recommended Posts

That's what they just said - they installed the strut and spring and that the springs are too short for the cartridge and are subsequently  loose while car is on the lift.  Is it supposed to be that way without the load of the car?

Couple things to help with short springs:


and safety wire the fronts ( a thread with almost the same title)


I clamped the rear spring to the perch (read about 1/2 way down):

All this safety wiring and clamps help tremendously when you jack the car up in the air and the springs want to fall off their perches.  You are forced to slowly lower the car while resetting the springs into their proper place.  PITA.
