    You didn't by any chance mistakenly install the front COs on the rear and vise versa? If my fronts were on the rear, my decal would also be upside down. Just checking, because they do have different spring rates.
    I started on the rear install because they shipped out the rear first and then a week later my front kits came in

    Who knows, Evo sent out stuff missing little things here and there

    First time building a Jeep so couldnít tell yah? How would I be able to tell?

    I donít want to call the company and bug them about some stupid thing either

    My rear ended is uber high!! Compared to the front....maybe the packaging was switched? Are the coilovers the same length? Never really thought to double check if the coilovers were for the front or rear. Just went off the sticker on the boxes

    I can't see the markings on my top springs at this moment, however here are pictures of the markings on the lower springs.

    FR/RR same length, different spring rates. Height can be adjusted by preload at the coil nut.

    The rear has almost no preload. I can drop the entire rear axle and the springs can ever so slightly jiggle on the coilovers....yet the rear is 2.25Ē higher than the front giving it the extreme rake

    What is this blue component on the inside of the lower spring covering your rod?

    Also looks like your control arms are installed backwards. Adjustable ends should be installed at the axle.

    The rear shocks have an offset bushing at the top mount to push the shock outboard.
