Your gap is bigger than mine also... I have no idea Doesn't make much sense?? The coils of the spring touching each other is normal they are designed to do that use a jack under that spindle to push that sucker in there!

I had to use a jack under the control arm and use the wedge side of a hammer to pry the clamp open . Now to reassemble!! I'll post new pics later today!

Also put in my shock/strut reinforcements

Looks good. I put my Konis on before I bought my springs. With the additional height, I went with the Race over Sport. We're running the same setup, now. How do you like it?

I love the setup! However If I had the money I would of gone with some coilovers... I would like to go just a tad lower in the front and rear.

Car handles AMAZING, Just put in some Rogue Engineering FCABs and RTABs!
