Is most of the spring supposed to be fully compressed like that?

But even so, that doesn't mean that they should be compressed like that, does it?

Yes it does. Ask anyone who owns springs like theses and they all look the same.

Yea... But not sure what problem I was having... I had a hard time getting one of the heim joint to unthread but with a but of heat it was easy to Remove, added anti-seize and painted the arm.

Got the front camber to - 4 degrees in the front and - 2ish in the back. Handles on the track well and so far seems to be good tire ware and gets even heat in the tire.
