Pics of the Teg from someone walking by or close-up pics of the components on the car?

For some reason photobucket decided to use the smaller pictures. I'll try later from my other computer and see what happens.

I have a pair of them, couldn't get them to fit directly, modifications must be made to the washers at the top to get them to fit right. Some say they just slide in but mine didn't :?

The spring seats on the shock, then the tubes with the adjustment ring go on top of the spring, and then the washer goes on top of the tube snugly fit inside (some people epoxy it in), then bolt in the shock as normal. I am having trouble with the washer that fits on top of the tube, gonna have to custom make something...

first picture, top assembly is correct

So my ground controls are really stiff in the rear. and i was wondering since i didnt buy them myself. My friend bought them for me. Can i call ground control (eibach) and read them the number on the spring to see the spring rate??

Eibach makes the springs because not everyone has the million dollar machinery to make springs. Just like wheels are mostly made by large production facilities, even Rota is oem for some manufacturers, as is Enkei, etc.
In the future, everything will work.
