Dinan Stage 1 Suspension - Raised rear

Has anyone encountered this? I purchased these springs used...

The rear is definitely higher than stock after install. Any tips or ideas on what I can do?

You didn't specify what vehicle you have so I'm going to guess: you probably bought a set of springs for a convertible and installed them on a coupe or a sedan. The vert is heavier in the rear than the other two so the springs are longer.

The solution is to contact Dinan and see if they'll sell you a pair of rear springs that match the car you actually have. Or, you could put 250 pounds of sand in the trunk.

The Dinan web site lists the following part numbers for the Stage 2 suspension.

EDC equipped cars:
D190-9032 for E92
D190-9072 for E90
D190-9052 for E93

non-EDC equipped cars:
D190-9031 for E92
D190-9071 for E90
D190-9051 for E93

Dinan called me before shipping my parts to ensure they were shipping parts for the correct model.
