Ground Controls!

Hello fellow 8th's! So about a year ago i installed my GC's and wondered why it wasn't as low as some say on this forum. my fronts are maxed out but i still have a half a finger gap. the rear is lowered about half way but is tucking tire. now my question is, is the shorter spring supposed to be in front or back of the car? pics of the GC's assembly on the car would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

are you sure you have them assembled correctly? when i had them on my car, i had no finger gaps at max high..i tried to get my car as high as possible with them and i couldn't..the one with less coils and more gap between coils is up front...pics of how you installed them?

it probly has more to do with the fact that the fender opening is always larger on the front of a car. Styling thing
