isn't that because the spring itself is shorter? and the rears were ok, we did this whole pry and place method. it scared me but it worked haha
no actually. the eibach springs are the same height, they are just more springy since they are lowering springs. more flexible. the rears were the same way. i had no clue on how to get them off and on, so i brought them to a shop and they pryed them off and on. it was ridiculous. you'd think ford would make an easier way to do this. the spring compressor i had before the shop didn't fit onto the spring haha. and that dumb bolt that is slightly welded on for the rear control arm is bogus aswell
