I cant help with the install but will you tell me your opinions on the UUC springs (once they are installed correctly). I am still debating what springs to get and the UUC springs are on top of my list. Thanks.

Dude... call UUC for help!! Unfortunately, their products are not DIY friendly since it doesn't come with a comprehensive instructions, most of the installation you have to figure out yourself, which in my opinion SUCKS!!
Good luck.

I forgot exactly how they look but I thought just the fronts had one end wound tighter at one end. Just put them in with the lettering and numbers right side up so that you can read them and you should be okay.

Convention dictates that the printing should be right side up on a spring when installed properly.

yeah...the spring install is a piece of cake....it's just that i forgot about whether it goes in one way or another in the rear....buti think i found the answer from the DIY files......in the pictures you can see the tighter wound coils are at the top which is what i did.....

i like the uuc springs...the ride is not much worse than stock...my only complaint is that there seems to be a little more gap in the front than in the back....that's probably b/c i have 18's this year instead of the 19's i had last year so it's more noticable.....as far as the lettering being up or down, i called UUC last year about this and they told me it didnt' make a difference as long as the spring is put in properly.......b/c when i put the springs in, it fit when the lettering was upside down....but all in all, i'm happy with them
