Thanks

we used a spring strut machine to compress stock springs to remove there is no tension on the pfadt springs when reinstalling. just make sure the springs are lined up in the pocket when putting the weight of the car back on them

Now that is the perfect drop! So pfadt's instructions say to trim both bumpstops? How much does it say to cut off?
