    Default Urgent eibach springs

    Hi guys, i'm putting in my new springs at the moment and there is a plastic sheath covering the 1st lower coil on the front two springs, are these meant to stay on or are they there to indicate top or bottom etc then be removed whilst fitting.
    Cheers

    i think they are meant to stay on - they are there to stop the squeeking you get from metal to metal contact.

    if i remember correctly, thats the suspension mod that vx do - just put plastic covers on the bottom of the spring.

    Hi Judas, i tried the spring on the strut and it only fits with the plastic coil around the top where the rubber gaitor protects the shock. would this sound correct ?

    From what i remember the springs only fit one way,if the plastic is on the top coils that's where Eibach want it,you could still fit the plastic from your old springs though.

    okay, i'll fit them with the plastic to the top as it seems the only way they will fit as one end is a different size to the other. Thanks for your help guys.

    The plastic sheafs were put on to stop spring noise, usually fitted under warranty when the customer complians about noise from the springs. Dont bother fitting them back on as I have never had any noise with my Eibach springs on. They are much better quality than vX
