    problems with SLP LEVEL II springs

    i had replaced my orginal springs with SLP Level II (300/450 springrate) last winter.
    so i drove my car for the first time after the winter, and i heard a problem (metal to metal)

    so i looked at my front springs and i see the spring is hitting the upper bolt form the upper control arm, this problem is on both sides.
    i checked it several times if i did make a mistake putting the spings on, but i can't see anything wrong.

    do i miss something ?

    it's the left bolt on the picture

    You may have the bolts on backward. Try putting the nut on the outside, I think you will have the room to clear the spring.

    Thanks 2002SLP for the responce, you mean the bolts from the upper arm ?, they have never been loose

    I solved the problem yesterday evening, i released the spring, and moved up the strut a little bit (i don't know the right name, the rubber thing on top), so now i have a little bit of clearance

    I think it's called a strut mount even though they are really shocks.
