Rear Spring Installation:
1. The rear springs are progressive so be sure to install the springs with the larger gaps on the bottom. (photo 8)
2. Assemble the rear spring as follows: install spring seat (ABP# NRC9700G) onto adaptor (ABP# 8006) place spring on seat (note gap position) secure with retainer (ABP# NTC6106) and two nuts (ABP# 1019). Install the isolator (ABP# ANR2938G) on the top of the springs and secure each with three nylon ties (ABP# 1017). This will hold the isolator in place during installation. If isolator is out of place, the rear height will be wrong. (See picture).
3. Install the assembly. Turn the assembled spring until it is close to its final position, flat spot near where it needs to be. Do not try to install the retainer clip at this time. Repeat for opposite side.
4. Install the tires at this time.
5. Go to the front of the car. While slowly lowering the car guide the front shocks into place. Lower far enough to install the bushings, nuts and washers on to the front shocks. Tighten the shocks. Install the retainer clip if you did not do it earlier. You may have to turn the spring assembly to install the retainer. Push the rubber from the top spring isolator that was pulled up earlier down into the center of the springs. This will assure that the front springs will be seated correctly on the top. (photo 9)
6. Raise the car again until the rear tires are just touching. Slowly lower the car while guiding the rear shocks into place. Install the bushings, washers and nuts. While lowering the car further, guide the springs into position on the perches. You may have to turn the spring to align the perch into the hole correctly. Lower fully and install the retainers. Check the tire pressure and jounce the suspension. Measure the height between the ground and the wheel well. The rear should be approximately a 1/4- to 1/2-inch taller than the front and even side-to-side. If not one of the spring isolators may be out of place. You may need to drive the car to settle the suspension and then measure.
