    Need some help folks. Bought a set of Steeda spring for my 2015 GT convertible. Got the front installed with no issues. When it comes to the rear springs, I cant seem to get the wheel assembly to drop enough to get the spring out. I even disconnected the sway bar. Any thoughts or ideas.

    The big convertible “v” brace needs to be removed so the subframe can be lowered.

    What springs did you purchase? Did you also get the 1/8” or 1/4” billet spring spacers?

    Spacers didn’t come with the springs. The directions say to use the existing. They are the 1” drop progressive springs if that helps. Thanks for the tip. I will drop the v brace.

    You will typically have to lower the subframe, at least the side you're working on, to get the long OEM springs out. That also requires taking off the V brace.

    So the only thing different from the instructions is to remove the v brace. Thanks.
