    Morning all. I mentioned earlier that I had fitted Jamex coilovers to my E36 328i Touring over the last few days.
    Can somebody please clear this up for me....
    The rear hight adjusters, do they go at the top of the spring or the bottom? I've fitted mine to the top, but my mate is convinced that they go at the bottom?

    They go on the top otherwise you cannot adjust the height in situ.
    If they went on the bottom, you cannot get the spanner onto the adjuster.

    Thanks matey, that's what I thought just needed a bit of reassurance!
