So I did the Shelby drop. This moring I installed the UCA and installed the coil spring. It's the 620 Grab a track spring that I think is a lowering spring. I immediately notice, I can now install the spring without the use of a compression. It just slips in. This caused me to ask you some questions.
1. Is it normal after the Shelby drop to be able to install springs w/o a compressor?
2. If so, what holds the springs in place when I jack the front of the car up to change a tire? Does the shock serve this purpose?
3. Nether the spring perch nor the spring seat (at the top) hold the spring. Correct?
4. I have new spring insulators. The spring does not seat on the outside of the upper lip of the shock tower. It looks too tight. Is this normal? If not, is there a trick to forcing the insulator to slip over the metal lip?
