The way i did my rear springs.
I put washers between the spring seat and the top plate because the spring seats purposefully don't engage the shock until the wheel has moved a certain distance. It helps soften ride, but makes it feel floaty with higher spring rates.BTW, who was it that added that washers to the top of the strut rod to offset the effects of lowering? The claim is/was that the strut was built to be installed at a specific ride height. But, I can't find the post, or recreate the research to substantiate the reasoning. Also, I could find very little resistance to struct moveement until I reached the limits of the rod movement.
Thanks in advance!!
If you can drive around them, your roads aren't that bad.@RKH404, oh LOL New England! I have to drive around the pot hots, and major surface defects.
