The box my Hotchkis springs came in said 19040009. Do you know if it's the same as 1922 or if not, what is the difference?
I have fairly worn 255/45/17 tires. My measurements from the ground to the bottom of the plastic molding that sourrounds the wheel well are 25" in the front and 25.5" in the back.
I have the opposite problem from yours. My front is lower than I would like it to be because I scrape too much.
I am under the impression that my car has settled more than the 1/8" Hotchkis tech says should be the max.
My guess is that in your case:
1) Front springs not fully seated in the upper spring pocket.
2) Front spring installed upside down. The closer wound coils go on top. The text on the label is right side up.
3) wrong or defective front spring.
Good luck. Please let us know what it was after you get it resolved.
