    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows of a product, or of any way to make Eibach springs, that are not flat on both ends, compatible with Bilstein coilover sleeves. I thought that maybe the piece on the bottom of my 5100 strut, where the spring rests now would make the bottom surface flat... but it wont. Is there any product that will? Like something the spring can rest on that has a flat surface so I can use the coilover sleeves? Any help or knowledge would be great.
    :help:
    Thanks

    I understand what you're saying. I actually have that set up right now, but in order to get the coilover set up Toytec offers, the coil spring needs to be flat on both ends

    But the spring I currently have installed is only flat on one end

    I guess my question is if there is a product made that the unflat end of the spring can sit on to make it flat like the other end? Because the guys at Toytec said in order to use a coilover sleeve, the spring must be flat on both ends. Has anyone ever seen a product that does this? In theory it doesn't sound hard to do right? But I can't find if it exists anywhere. :confused:
