    They weren't labeled or nothin...I called Skunk2 and he said 'the bigger ones go on the back'. One pair was really thin, but had a lot more winds. The other pair was thicker, and didn't have as many winds. I assumed he meant the thickness of the spring.


    Not surprisingly, I assumed wrong. :shrug:

    Yup.


    All it is, is that the springs that are in back should be in front. With the couplea hundred pounds the motor will add on the front end, it'll drop it down even to the back (or rather, the back once I switch the springs)

    ya the thicker coils def. go in the front. When he said the bigger ones id assume he meant the diameter of the spring ( how big around it is) but most your civic and integra springs are roughly the same size front to back but just differ in the size of your coils....i have an accord and my springs are much larger in the back...impossible to screw up. anyhow u certainly have yours backwards. u still own the prelude in the background? and whos garage it looks really nice..and quite big

    The prelude is my brother's. And the 'garage' is an old out-of-businessChevrolet dealership that my dad's business partner owns. It's teh awesome. There's a compressor with a huge-ass air tank out back, that's got hoses coming out every 20 feet on every wall inside, and there's an alignment rack in there, too. Same shop I painted the hatch in, and tore down the fodo after the wreck.

    :thumbsup:

    I thought about leaving it and telling everyone that I have the skunk2 drag launch springs....




    but once the motor's in the car, the front will probably sit on the frame. blah.

SLammed in the front and tall as shit in the back. He was so pissied he said he was just gonna keep it like that, the next day when he got up and his sister came out and talked shit and laughed her ass off he came back over to swap um over. :lol:
