WTF did Disturbed01 and I just find in the suspension? (Pics)

We setup shop at his house to do the eibach lowering springs on my car since he already had them on the shocks it was supposed to be "easier." Yea right.

Anyways we pulled out the front two shocks with springs and here is what we found in the pics below.... in the first pic the one on the left is Bobby's spring and shock, the middle is what we pulled from the passenger side and the right one is what we pulled from the driver side.




This is a side by side comparison of the new one and the we pulled out from the driver side:



Here is the kicker... the car was not different height wise when I bought the car. However it apparently had one eibach spring? The rear was oem as well so I guess someone forgot to pull it out lol. All I know is the part number is different and the height was the same so maybe it was an OEM height Eibach if there is such a creature. Figured I would share as you never know what your going to find doing this stuff.

i think at work we have one front spring, and one rear spring that are rogues, not sure on the eibach part numbers, i just know we had a car come in side swiped and front and rear shock/springs were smashed so we took the 2 good ones off the other, and put stock springs on. if you are trying to build a set.

If you know what those #s mean you know that they should be the same spring dia, etc.

Just by looking at them you can see a difference. They may be same "specs" in some ways, but they are two differant rates as seen by the # of coils.

Also, the middle one needs the spring rotated approx. 90* clockwise. See bottom perch.

Yep the one in the middle came off the car... the ones we placed on we ensure the spring was rotated properly. We know they are different its just amazing that one side had what we believe an OEM spring and then the other had this rogue Eibach spring but the thing was the same height lol.

Middle from Pass side and Right from dr side.

Why would they want a stiffer spring on p/s and not on d/s?

Maybe it was just a mix-up, that or someone has an od reason.

Pretty odd as it was. I also noticed the sway bar end link bushings were more or less new on that side. They did not have the same wear as the rest of them. It was strange. Also it took us about 8hrs to swap the shocks. The rears were a total PITA. We had gone through 3 types of spring compressors before we for on that worked worth a damn.

For the front whatever idiot put it together did it without the sway bar and end-links on the car. When you try to take the bolt out it hits the sway bar end links. A sime swap of the way the bolt went in had it back together in about 15min.

Wifey kicked ass as always with lots of drinks and pizza. Safe to say...that project didn't go as planned. But it was fun!!!

I noticed that my car was approximately 3/4" higher on on side ( gap between tires on left versus right was noticable). Could your find somehow have compensated for a height difference, sir?

I hope so! It took about 8hr for 8 bolts. So that that rate we should have the TT kit done about 2033. Lol.

Edit: Need before/after pics.
