    sup guys.. i have 4 skunk 2 coilovers on my EG.. my red spring on the coilover is really loose.. i can move it up and down with no problem with one finger. The guy i bought the car from said it does that because it is a short sleeve or something. The bottom piece which ur suppose to turn to raise you lower the car is on their reallly tight as well.. The height of my car as of now is perfect but should i leave them like that or buy new ones?

    They're fine. Higher spring rate springs are shorter than stock so that the car sits right. You should clean up the sleeves with a rag and some WD40 before trying to adjust them. A lot of grit usually makes its way into the threads making them hard to turn. If you're car sits fine right now, I'd leave them alone.
