    Good day,
    I got some E-gay lowering springs a while back instead of what I actually ordered, and I had a set of struts laying around so I tried to figure out how they work. Does anyone know where I could find some instructions for these things?

    The set came with the springs, those metal sleeves with the 2 the adjusters on them, a bunch of small washers, a ton of small o-rings, 8 big o-rings, plastic caps for the springs (?) and 2 fork looking things which i assume are to adjust the things when theyre on the car.

    Thanks!

    lol, just put the metal sleeves over your stock shocks get them good and centered, with the little screws that will hold them in place,then put the springs on top of that, the threads on the sleeve need to go to the top. and those tools they sent are to lock and unlock your ride height. and those rubber o rings just toss them in the trash lol

    Dude, honestly, if you can't figure out how to install these, you probably shouldn't be messing around with anything on your car short of putting gas in the tires and air in the gas tank.

    Hah thanks for your input there civicious, but I don't see any problems with making sure critical components of my vehicle's suspension are properly installed. ;)

    oops one more question, do you just crank those set screws down (a little bit at a time one after another) until the adjusters clear them?
    Also whats with the plastic caps that fit on the springs?
    Thanks!
