not the springs, the perches.... but i have nto had that particular model apart. Many can go in "wrong" and still go together. That tales them from convex to concave - and about 1" difference. Ergo my comment

I took everything apart again and discovered that everything was installed correctly the first time. I have no explaination for the discrepancy in height. Additionally I discovered the right side is about a half inch higher than the left. Against my better judgement I broke out the cutoff wheel and removed half a coil from both springs. The left side now seems good and the right side still a little too high. Pictures to follow.

Ever get some pics together? I'm interested in having a slight rake by using eibach pro feathers just on the front. Eliminate some front wheel well gap and improve handling maybe. Also, did you bother with adjustable uppers?

Is there some detail I am unaware of? Thanks


Eibach has 3 different kits for the c5 and some kits are wrong there's a whole thread on it...

I have never had springs that needed more than a quick drive to settle. I suspect either a hat problem or a wrong spring.
