rear suspension in 99 SI

hey can someone send me a diagram on what parts are needed for the rear suspension in my si? like the metal washer going into the strut mount etc? i think im missing something because my rear is sitting lower than my front is? and they are brand new springs with new kyb struts so im lost. if i had a diagram that would help. I have the dust caps that came with the sturt but when i compressed my springs i couldnt fit that little tapered ring in so maybe that is needed? the dust caps have 2 huge metal washers so that supports it but i could be wrong? do i need that tapered ring? someone please help thanx

Fill in the blanks and it will show you diagrams and part numbers. Just remember a Canadian Si is an American EX and a Canadian SiR is an American Si.

This should be what you're looking for



The shock assembly at the top shouldn't make too much difference in the ride height because the cars weight is sitting on the springs and not all those washers. On my car I accidently destroyed that metal spacer that goes in between the rubber at the top, so I didn't use it. If you have subs than that is more ikely the problem because of the weight. One thing you could do is buy a spacer that the rear springs sit on so the car raises a little bit.
