hey all,
kind of new here. i just installed new global west competition s-24 coils springs in the front. they are supposed to lower the car by 1inch. i have the car jacked up right now and the springs are in place, however the springs are loose..... i have 3/8 insulators on them and it still has about 3/4inch gap to the top of the tower. do i need larger pads or should i just take the car off the jacks while i position them into place?
thanks for any help!!

it sounds to me like you just need to lower the car and see where it sits as the springs seem to be just what you are looking for.
