Default I made out with my own mom

I wish I could facepalm in the thread title.

Anyways, I installed my coilovers backwards. Short on the front, long on the back. Now it looks like some sort of dragster Miata gone wrong.

Just thought I'd share my knowledge and warn people:
SHORT ON BACK, LONG ON FRONT.

That is all.

For all you ******'s viewing pleasures

Sorry 'bout the shitty quality, my real camera stopped charging so I have to use my cell

Front is cranked all the way up, back is all the way down.

Did you not look at how they came off? Or did you not run into issues? I can't imagine getting the longer shock body on the rear without some serious cussing and big tools to pry with.
