    So I got my ebiach sportline Springs today and started installing them... Everything was going fine until it came time to pit the tie rod back on... The stud that is part of the tie rod has a castle nut that holds it tight but the castle not will only go about flush with the stud then it just turns the stud... Also a dumb question but I want to be sure. With the ebiach sportline Springs do the shorter fatter Springs go on the back and the longer slimmer Springs go on the front or the other way around?

    if the stud is spinning the only way to stop that i think is to seat it more solid and maybe use an impact to turn it on. Not sure why you removed the tie rod though I've never had to do that. Also the springs should only fit one way, the longer springs that are the same diameter all the way down are the front springs and the shorter ones with the little pig tail at the bottom go on the rear. both of the rear pig tails should point towards the drivers side when installed.
