Icon5 Need help

Sorry everyone but I need help trying to figure this out.
Just received my springs this morning, went out to rent a spring compressor and would like to do the work tomorrow morning.

I do not know which are the front and rear springs. I called Megan Racing and was told the fronts are usually fatter. I am looking at the springs and they are the same, two of them are shorter however.

Can someone please help? Where do the short ones go?

Thanks


Rice!

Re: Need help

The rears will usually always be the longer springs and the short ones the front

Finished doing all 4 springs. Will post pictures later. The fronts actually gave me more trouble. Then again, today was one of those days that made me realize how little upper body strength I have. Looks like a 2 inch drop, rides and looks great.

Re: Need help

question did you have to move that bar out of the way to remove the spring or did someone help you press down on the control arm?

Ok here are 3 pictures. My signature picture shows the before.

To answer your question, no I did not have anyone help me, that would explain why it took me the better part of the day to do the springs. This girl does not give up!

Re: Need help

Nah, I get that part, just are all mothers Wonder Women? Raise a kid and do springs.
I even forgot to mention wide and short springs up front, those are the load bearing springs.
