    Default Springs fitted

    Ive just had my lowering spring fitted, Gmax 40mm. I know they have to be ridden in for about a week but the back is sitting much higher than the front. Is this normal? I ordered the springs from Carnoisser so they are the right springs!?

    Never used Gmax,so dont know, but Have heard some not too good stuff about them tho'. On my Pi's i am pretty sure it would have made a difference which way up they went due to the way the coils are. If you need a hand sorting it out, let me know...

    Mmm... Ill have to ask about that. Ive used Gmax before and was impressed with them so from experience went with them again. Anybody else tried Gmax on their vec?

    EDIT: if it doesnt settle in well then i will be calling on your help. Thanks

    Would that make the springs sit funny in the seats? Would it be possible to of fit the front springs on the back and back on the front?

    No, it's not possible. The front springs are cylindrical to fit over the shock absorber, the rear ones are egg shaped.
