At ride height, move them down so that you have a third of the travel distance spacing.

Say at ride height you had 6" of shaft showing, you would leave a 2" gap between the stop and the spacer. This will make a good stating point.

Right now you will never hit them and are running single rate.

Yea, barge spotted it. Spring slider is upside down.

Once you get that right, you need to find the block height of lower spring(Eibach publishes theirs on their site).... then you can set it to just a little bit over that distance on the bench. That's the max you can go.

Like barge said.... way up where you have it.... You will always be straight rate up there.

That might help with sway if you can actually compress enough to hit second rate.

Thanks for the info!
I'll take them off and swap them around.
Is the block height the distance the spring compresses before it binds?

I doubt you will ever get close to the block height on that thing. Springs are too light and to long.

With your type of racing, you will probably end up with the stop real close to the slider at ride height. If you end up riding on the main that much you may need to up the reb a little.
