Sorry Steve. I didn't mean to make it sound like I was doubting you. Thank you for your input. I will have to look at the front springs to see if they are any different also.

No problem at all.
Fronts the same way if progressive.
If not...doesnt matter which way.
Just seat the bottoms properly.

The fronts do not seem to be progressive so they can go either way. I have ordered new rubber bushings for all 4 springs also. Figured if I was gonna have em out I might as well do them now. Thanks for the input guys. It is appreciated Arrow

What did you order for rubbers on the front?
Stocks are pretty much flat
If you add anything with thickness...add that to your final ride height.
(Just in case you didnt figure that out already)

I just ordered factory replacement ones. I haven't got the front apart yet to see whats in there. The ones that came out of the back were pretty fucked up though.

Someone also told me something about limiting straps for the rear also. I didn't figure I needed them if I wasn't going to be launching it over a pile of dirt like the Duke boys did. cheers

Ha! Smile

And if you have ST's or something really short, then just ziptie them to their pads.
