Hi All,

Got some Lovell's FRL-42SL superlow rear springs for my EF, putting in this weekend. Just wondering whether the thinner end of the spring is supposed to go at the top or bottom? Or if it even matters?

Cheers,

The end with the tighter packed coils is the top.
You can tell the top from bottom by the flat finish of the spring (being the top) versus the coil just being cut (the bottom, which matches with the rubber insert on the diff)
