    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    Default Rear Spring Pads...

    Are these supposed to last the life of the car, or doe these need replacing every now and again...

    And when rear springs are fitted, are the ends of the spring primed (like some do the front) or grease put between the springs and the pad...

    Cheers...
