Default Question About Tien Install

I had some tien springs installed about 2 weeks ago. today i was working on the car. An i noticed that my back springs look different. One is installed with the silencer rubber that is on them towards the top. An the other silencer rubber is at the bottom. is this spring upside down. The driver side in the back does look a ,little higher. maybe someone who has them can tell me which way they should be...?

Ive seen that silencer rubber at the top, the bottom and even both so i wouldnt go by that. I can say the tighter spring coils should be at the top if im not mistaken

I guess even if it was upside down it would still be the same height. The car rides fine. would i be able to tell if it was upside down by driving.. i also lifted the back rear today so the spring probably has to settle a little... Im not impressed with the drop. The front is nice but i thought the back would be lower. Kinda has a lean to it now. But every nissan i have owned the passenger rear always looked lower than the driver rear.. Or just looked that way...

I'm pretty sure the tighter part of the spring is supposed to be at the top.

Took it today an they swapped the spring around. At no charge of course. They even installed my lower left control arm. The bushing in the very back was dry rotted. Not bad. Got to love free work. But of course it isn't free as much as i have spent at this shop...lol

I also did the tighter coils up top. I think mine sits too high as well for what it was but it is better than stock. Have had them for quite some time too so I know they should have settled by now. I may switch them one day to see what difference it makes.

Rotorpros, that was a pic of the install, so they were brand new, but they still look good.
