I'd call your insurance agent and ask who they prefer.

My rears are to slammed down. I went to buy some h&r springs and installed them to see if it would raised the rears up. I Had them installed and I looked at it and didn't like it one bit, so I replaced it with the ones I had on. didn't even let the springs settled down or drove around the block to have it sink in place. What a waste of time! So moved on and did other maintenance. Might do a repeat of installing it again and see if it settle down in a couple of days.
