So I ordered what was supposed to be direct replacement shocks and coil springs for the back of my car. With the old and new springs sitting in the floor, the new springs were 2.5 inches taller and were a progressive spring. My shocks were totally shot and stayed compressed when you pushed them in. Installed the new springs and shocks. It raised the stance in the back by 3.5 inches, from 25.5 to 29. The new springs are made by Precision Coil springs model # SP08011. The shocks are Monroe 33082. Pics are a before in the street and after in the garage.

Those are some huge tires you have on the rear. Any issue with rubbing? What size are they and do you know the back spacing you have? Mine is suffering from lack of traction.

I apologize if it's just me, but something does not look right with that spring seat. Maybe it's a bad picture angle? It looks like the spring is sitting on the axle tube? Is there a pigtail at the bottom of that spring, positively locked onto a perch?
