Hey guys. I got one side of my springs installed. I had a heck of a time getting the shock to bolt up because it was hitting the inside of the spring. Now that it is installed it is barely rubbing the spring. This is a Chassis Engineering kit. I know there isn't any load on the springs yet and the frame doesn't have enough weight for me to load the spring with a jack because it just picks the whole assembly up.

Has anyone had this situation?



I have a few other questions as well, but I'll pose them in the appropriate forums. I'm having trouble with my transmission mount screws. They won't tighten down and I'm wondering if I'm supposed to have a nut on the back side of them. Also my (truck) exhaust manifolds won't fit in my frames and I'm wondering if the best option is to go with headers or stock Corvette or Camaro manifolds. I've heard that the stock manifolds are just as good as shorty headers.
