    I'm pretty sure i did! I'll be pulling it apart again tomorrow to double check but i am sure i fitted one below and one above because i remember reading about this problem on before.
    I can't possibly have messed that up surely

    P.S. these coilovers are horrible. Thought they were ok at first but after doing a few miles i really don't like them. Far too bumpy for road driving imo.

    Gonna shell out and buy new original suspension instead. As the saying goes, buy cheap buy twice :( .
