    Default Rear Springs

    Hi, Can someone help on this please? What way should the pigtails on the bottom of the rear springs be facing? or does it matter. I replaced mine last week and didnt pay attention to how they were sitting, just want to make sure i have them positioned correctly. Thanks.

    IF you mean the spring ends(pigtails ) as you call them them,then it does not matter as long as they are seated correctly hth.

    tighter coils to the top actually- if there is any difference. It is to stop stones getting caught between them a making a crunching noise/damaging the coating.
