If you haven't done springs before, the new ones will be shorter....

Meaning you will have to make a spacer to make the new setup the same length as an orignal oem spring...

I made a alloy spacer washer to do the job, sat under the plastic spacer tube.....


Why will they be stiff at first then soften up?
If the spring is collapsing or changing rate significantly, that to me would be a poorly engineered/manufactured spring.
