My confusion was that the spring, even with the bottom perch rings all the way down against the ride height ring, gave the spring tension. Right now, as we speak, I hammered the lock washer to the bottom perch and left very little space. I basically had to end up with more that what would be 3 to 5mm worth of compression. So I could have some space at the bottom. It worked out.

What spurred the confusion was I was supposed to screw the retainer nut down finger tight and I was getting compression in the spring doing it finger tight. Wasn't sure at that point if I was supposed to bottom the nut out (which you do) or just finger it till you get spring compression.

Once I knew wht the deal was, I just took the chance on the ride height and measured both spring perch gaps for each side and made sure they were equal. Did the same for the rear.

I feel like we should change your thread title to Days of much drama!

Good luck getting everything together.
