Default A warning to those who buy H&R springs

Before you get the car up in the air and get the suspension all unbolted, make sure that H&R actually sent you 2 back springs and 2 front springs. Because it will be bad if they sent you 4 back springs and 0 front springs. In fact it will really **** you off.

PS, if you've ordered H&R springs and discover that you have 4 front, please contact dopplebadgerdorifter immediately.

More or less TireRack's fault.

Nobody said you were. But you were involved, so we get to pick on you.
Damn, take a joke.

Jeeezus dude, there's no need to bore the masses with the complexities. Did that knock to your head cause a little swelling?
Unless TR picks and packs (which I'd doubt) it would be H&R's fault.

If anything, we got the crazy torqued upper a-arm bolts loose so it will be easier to deal with next time. I wonder if the MSM cars have a higher torque spec on those bolts from the factory. They were pretty rediculous.
