Just a note guys: Bought a set of lowering springs for my wagon from Shox / Susp. Techs. 1 1/2 years ago. Could not use the springs because they fall out when changing tires. This is bad, especially on a wagon where you need full extension to change rear tires.
The rear springs measure 10 1/2" fully unladen (rears), and the original opening in the car is 14" (original rear springs measure 14 1/2"). I was told to ship springs back to them. Then, they said I had to be responsible for my modifications. I said that if my wife has a flat tire, and somebody stops to change it, and the spring falls sideways, this could be a real problem if the car is lowered and the spring goes through the fuel tank? They literally said "tough ****". They have never returned my money because they said the springs were perfect. I even spoke to the Vice President of Bell Tech (owns susp. tech.) at Super Summit Days, and he said he would get to the bottom of it. He won't even take my calls, nor does he phone back.
Moral of the story. BEWARE WHO YOU DEAL WITH! You can forward this to Shox and to Susp. Tech. if you want. They won't deny it. Also, one more thing-They have a female Engineer at Susp. Tech who has not the faintest idea what she is talking about. She said she has the same car (BS) and she changes rear tires by jacking axle up (can't be done). I caught her up on several statements which were not true. They have the best of both worlds-They have my money, and the springs, which she said she sold. Good Luck to all who buys from any of them.
