i can only address my particular vehicle and intrax's response to my concerns. it may work fabulously on other's vehicles. however, if a jack is placed under either side of my car, there is a measured 2" of space from the spring pigtail to the perch. i can reach in and remove it with by hand.(with the shocks still attached). how often are our wheels OFF the ground when under way? chances are good if they are, we'll here glass an smell s#@t, but it is a safety concern, especially if someone like MY wife(said mechanically challenged) were required to change a flat and dropped a spring. but, don't ask me, ask intrax, they say it aint right. back to the subject at hand, do any of the other mfr fit better? i would really like to get rid of the nosebleed rake and level out.
