    Hey guys just wondering if it's possible to install the spring perch upside down. If so might help me solve my lift problem. Pictures are appreciated if you got them! Thanks

    Hey Oz is there any way that my lack of height could be anything other than bad springs?

    Set the coilovers up on the. 85 setting and see if you get the amount of lift you want. Seems like your short amost that much.

    I was thinking about that. But, I'm afraid that will change too many things like my ride and if it doesn't then I don't want to have to tear it down again. I can most likely get my money back for the coils since I bought them on Amazon. So, I just figure get new ones that sit correctly rather than play the guessing game. Besides will .85 give me exactly that or does it equate to double like a top plate spacer?
