    Arent you supposed to take the standard spring out then put the new coilover and spring in place of the standard shock.

    I am sure the silver adjuster goes on the bottom of the spring, I may be wrong though but I have seen other kits with it fitted on the bottom.

    Some people just leave the adjuster out on the rears, depends on how you want it to look
