When you installed them, they had to be aligned properly on the spring perches. when I changed my shocks I marked the existing springs and made a mental note to make sure they go back the same way. Basically the end of the spring has to butt up against that lip in the perch, and the rubber pad should be aligned in there as well.

Look at that subtle jet-black coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even has a 6mt.
