H&R springs fit the same way that stock springs do. The shape of the spring is most important. If the spring is the same on both sides and fits the same either direction, then it is correct to install the spring with the closer coils “up”. If the spring is smaller at one end and larger at the other, the orientation should match OEM factory installed springs.
All H&R OE Sport Springs, Sport Springs, Super Sport Springs are progressive when possible for the application.
Alignment should be checked after any suspension ride height modification. Follow the guidelines in the factory service manual to ensure that alignment is as close to factory specification as possible.
The part number on the box is the product part number. The part number on the springs is a component part number. Please have the following information available: year, make, and model of the vehicle application, the product part number found on the box, and the individual spring component part numbers.
No. Color does not indicate which springs you have. The part numbers printed on the springs and/or spring box indicate whether you have a Race Spring kit or otherwise.
You should measure your ride height before and after suspension installation. Measurements should be taken from the center of the axle (center of wheel) to the lip of the fender. Refer to the “Lowering Measurements” section found on the H&R Technical Information (bright orange) sheet included with your H&R spring set.
Not unless noted on the H&R Technical Information sheet (bright orange)—or accompanying inserted sheets—included with your H&R spring set.
