    Lowering Problem...

    Hey guys, I'm hoping someone else has had this problem before and knows what to do.... I bought the Eibach Pro-Kit, and had a mechanic install it for me while I'm out of town. Anyway, he put the rear springs on, and says the car is dropped 3 inches, not the 1 inch that was promised... I don't think he's that dumb, but would putting the front springs in the rear do that? For that matter, I know that 2 springs are perfect cylinders, and the other 2 start wide and get small... which goes in front and which goes in back?? Any help would be great!!!

    P.S. I double checked the part no. and confirmed it is the right part.

    the front springs are smaller in diameter than the rear. they won't fit in the spring pocket either. did he put the rubber isolator back in with the new springs?

    That would be my guess as well. He did not replace the isolators when he installed the rear springs.
