I also got my springs from Bob Harris. They sit high at first installed in an incomplete car, but once the car is complete it sits fine. I put about two hundred pounds of cement block in the trunk to help settle the springs while the car was still apart. As for the finish Jerry told me to spray them with REM oil (the gun oil). It works like a charm, the springs have been in for about four years now and they still have that nice bare metal look. Hope this helps, RonM.
