Did we get some spring rates stiffer than the current white rear springs?

Watch your droop settings with the new 2.0 rear end. The new shorter 89mm CVD can/will pop out if too much droop and the rear arm gets flexed hard. Already happened to me in practice.
Just sayin...

Even though the drive shaft is shorter than the old one it is in the same place in the outdrive as the old one so that would be really hard to do.

Can you take a picture of the whole rear end of your car and email it to me so we can see maybe why it happened? [email protected]

My shock position is 2/b and shock length is 123mm.
