    Mechanic was supposed to install camber kit today. Took off tire and saw this:

    Said the first arrow is supposed to be down where the second arrow is and I should have it checked @ the shop that did the install for me. Just wanted to run it by you guys and see if I could get a second opinion. By the way that's Neuspeed sport spring on Tokico HP strut

    my teins don't go all the way down to the lip. by how much i see sticking out of the bottom, it looks like it is in as far as it goes. does your other side not look like that?

    i think its ok then. do what the people in forum said also, you can feel around the back for that tab that is suposed to go where the fork "squeezes" together, see if that tab is in there.

    Loosen up the bolt in the back, and see for yourself if it goes down anymore. If not, then you know your answer.
