    Default fitting eibach springs

    hi ive just got a set of the above springs to fit, now i have never done springs before and this may be a very silly question but i was wondering if the springs went a particular way round? im guessing it would be so you could read the writting on the spring the right way up?
    also i got the 2 sleeves for the front from vx are they for the top or the bottom on the fronts?
    many thanks

    The fronts only go one way up but yes the writing should be the right way. I put the back ones in so the writing could be read too (although they could go in either way)

    The sleeves go on the bottom of the front springs
