I tried to put mine on today and the back springs are too thin. The fronts fit fine but not the back. They are about 3/4 of an inch too thin(Imagine 0 is the spring perch and o is the spring, so it looks like this side by side, 0o, get the picture ). They do not sit on the strut perches. I called H&R and they said these are the correct springs and they will look into it and call me back Monday. They told me to leave the fronts on for now. This pisses me off.

Are these noticabily thicker? The stock rear springs are soo lame. I understand for comform or whatever but mine bottom out when 2 people in the back seat of any weight.

I'd like to find something decent. The fronts seem fine, but it would be nice to drop the ride height a bit.

Keep us posted on what this company tells ya.

Something like this happened to me as well. I bought an aftermarket product for my '97 and it would not fit. I returned it bought another one from another store and still it was a wrong size. And this is after the sales clerk made sure it was the "right" one. I ended up buying a OEM part.

Thank you SuprGTR for this discrepancy. I am searching for my springs and am sorry for that trouble you'd had with the H & Rs. Good luck!
