What springs are you guys running? I got some Tru Coils from Speedway (stock replacements) and they are very hard to get in. I have a metric car.

Thanks

YOU NEED 11 INCH, BY 5.5. FOR USE WITHOUT SPACERS.

afco or true coils really aint a whole lot of differance in the two as a rookie if you start out with 12 inch springs and by the time you cut them down to get you proper ride height you will need to have them re tested and also afco and true coil do not warrenty them if you cut them so that is something else to keep in mind

Keep in mind that when you cut a spring to shorten it, it becomes stronger. SLEEPY

11 inch for metrics and 12 inch for the older, non metric cars
