I agree. I wouldn't have bought them, they were a gift from my GF. Couldn't complain. Lol

Going to look into something else over winter. She won't know the difference.

Just went through the link you provided. Weird. I have progressive springs and they dont do that. Oh well, They say you could just swap the rear for GC linear springs and be golden. Dont hurt your girlfriend's feelings.

Rear ST coilovers spring crooked?

Just noticed my spring too, left rear looks like it's been compressed, paint missing etc saw it when I was working on my brakes.. Op you swap out the spring for something different? Or planning on installing a different set up altogether?

I'm just going to wait till I can swap out the whole suspension to something else. Everyone I've spoke with has this problem with ST's, and some KW's.

So what ever happened with this problem? Is that how the springs are supposed to be (collapsed like the pic) or were they in fact the wrong springs? My ST's look the same and i feel like my car handles like crap and the rear feels bouncy (yes i have brand new poly rtabs).

Further, when i close the door of the car the whole car wobbles side to side. Can be replicated by pushing the car, give a good shove above teh door and it noticeably rocks side to side a cpl times (not anything major but a good deflection and at least 4 or 5 wobbles). What the hell is wrong with my car, anybody else notice this who is running ST coilovers?

both me and my friend with another e46 m3 have ST coilovers. Mine sits normal but his sits just like the picture... this may be an issue with these coilovers that we dont know.
