I´m not sure that was a helpful reply!

what do you mean by the spring has a lot of slack?

sounds like the spring rate is to high for the car.

By the way do you mean that the spring become unseated? because that is normal with coilovers, and unless your in a rally or something they should stay seated under normal driving .

ok well they shouldn´t just fall out if you jack up your car. can you take a picture of it? sounds like the springs are too short or installed wrong/weird.

We need more info to give you an answer.

well i got GABRIEL GAS STRUTS. i put the coil-over sleeves over the
strut, then i tighten the coil-over sleeves down. At first when i got the coil-over system, I looked at the spring an said these are to small, about call NOPI.Com and they said that they were the right ones. Rememeber that i have the NUMBER #1 ONE´S COIL-OVER´S. Then i put the coil-over perches on. Then i put the spring on. then i put the billet aluminum spring alignment cap on. Well what i´m trying to say is that should of I first set the springs to the highest setting, so i can compress them like that, but if i lower the perches that would uncompress the springs. because i´m tried of lifting my car up and seeing my spring just come out of position.
please help..............
