Has anyone got a diagram showing how the golds fit together? Trying to put the units together ready to go on the car but can't remember what order everything goes together!

Do you mean as in you have disassembled them? or just the order of spring(s) etc?

Shock- lock ring - bottom spring seat/ring - spring - top spring cap - possibly a washer or top hat washer dependant on setup - top mount - top hat washer -nut

The above is using a spherical bearing top mount, If you're using the standard 306 top mount that will fit On after the top spring cap. It's very simple really.

    This is what I've done so far, seems to be roughly right however it's possible to move the spring and cap around underneath the topmount. This could be because they aren't tight enough?

    no, quite normal if you are running rudeboy ride heights without a helper spring.

    Ok, thanks Mei.

    On the topic of helper springs, are they aimed at raising the ride height slightly? Not 100% sure on their use?

    By increasing the compression of the spring?

    Sorry for revamping this thread, but I was wondering if helper springs should be on top or below the main spring?

    Thanks! Then I can leave them as they are.

    Noticed that the spring is already completely compressed even before the whole weight of the car is pressing down on it. So I will do nothing at all when driving.
