    I was trying to adjust my rear springs with a FK streetline setup and on the one side the rings were so seized onto the perch that heat, c clamps, and pb soaking didnt make a dent in.

    I am swapping high-vin front spring perches for the low-vin ones. Some images of the shock/spring assembly show the vented part of the perch facing outward and others show it facing inward! Question is, is there a specific position they need to be at? Any info greatly appreciated:thumbup:
