Would be a a good day I'll bring beer or whatever your diet allows you to drink. I was going to ask too because I will probably have no idea how to run the lines or what PSI to fill too.

Don't forget you can get KYB-GR2 Front Struts. They are a little better than stock, and a heck of a lot better than blown struts.

And with so many people looking to do SSE/SSEi suspension swaps, I may have to start putting used kits together to sell....

Default Need Help

My Car:
1995 Bonneville SE
Soft ride suspension
No air ride at all.

Installed new springs, sway bars from an SSEi. Also put on Monroe Air struts. This is what I got.
http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/c...ket_32184_.jpg

Please help. What did they do wrong? The guy that is installing them says the car was nearly level with out the struts but with them on and no air, she is ridin high. These are the part numbers Advance Auto says works on my car.

Is there anyway the springs could be "clocked" wrong and it would raise the rear?

springs need to settle in for a while, how long did you drive it?

drive it for a couple weeks and see what you got. you might have to play with the air pressure to bring the back down.

did you get used springs from a ssei or new?
