Ok I need some input here! I have posted this on 2 other sites with no reply.I installed a set of Drop Zone springs on my box a couple of days ago. The rear springs are wound very close for the first 5 or so rows. The last 2 rows are spaced much further apart. Heres where it gets sticky! After putting the car on the ground there is no space between the coils on the top rows at all and the bottom rows look the same with a large gap. Is this normal? It seems to ride just fine but looks kind of strange? :eek:

rear coils

Well the damn springs didnt come with any instructions and the only thing I had to go bye was where the name of the spring is printed on the spring. I thought you should be able to read it? I was really wondering about the tight coils. Do yours actually touch each other? Mine are flat slammed against each other.Thanks for the reply!

You should have seen the Spy springs, they were about the same. And up front, there were at least 3 full coils that were touching.

lowering springs

Ok I called Drop Zone today and talked with their tech guy and he said that the springs are progressive rate springs and that they are suposed to be touching like that. I counted them today and there are 7 rors touching and 2 wide rows. Just thought you guys might like to know what I found out. Thanks to everyone! :D

Goldlines are the same progressive type. Im think of changing springs. Do you have pics of the drop? How much did it lower it.

Re: lowering springs

Chris,
What springs are you running now? Your drop does not look bad...

Im running the Goldlines right now, they are a 2 inch drop. I am considering the Dropzone but havent seen a xb with them installed yet.

My Eibach Sportlines do the same thing, over half of the coils are touching each other under compression, and they're installed so that the coils touching are on top. Looks like a freakin' bee hive.
