The part with the coils packed closer is soft. Coils further apart is hard. I don't think it makes any difference which way you install it, but from what i've seen most of the time the closer coils at the bottom. Hope this helps.

the coils that is nearer is harder... coz when the spring is compressed, the distance of coils at the closer end would touch each other earlier, thus making the ride more stiff.... thats theory part la, but not sure which one face upwards... hehe..

ahhaa, okie, lemme explain abit from my experiance, wether the closer part is up or down, it all depends on your absorbers, the futher away should be placed at where the springs touch the metal plate(bottom for mine, but i guess it bottom for most cars also) as there is a lock there to prevent the springs from spinning round and round and round... :D

as the top part, should try to get the closer together ones as they are positioned almost flat, meaning it would rest on the bushes nicely without one side senget or tilted(if you get what i mean) so when you screw the absorbers mounting and the base, the springs will settle in nicely, if not, you might either spoil your rubber bushing or worst, when driving, your springs might fall out of the base :D

my two cents larr :D

emm...i think it depend on structure of damper itself..i mean the flat steel mount and the rubber bushes...ayyaa...
not easy describe on PC...must get 1 shock absorber and elaborate...

p/s: the best thing is ask mechanic. anyone got motorbike??
anything from kapchai model...do look at their rear shock absorber...SEE CAREFULLY THAT THE CLOSER PART IS DOWN.. BECAUSE THE PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT OF SPRING..
comment appreciated

hmm, i have a scooter lastime, and also a NSR, the springs on the scooter bottom and on top also got compressed wan wor?? ahaha, haiya, ask mech the best, think they should know best also, for me why i mentioned that way is because when i tried it, it installed better with the compress part on top, as the curve at the lower absorber part there is kinda steep, or what do you call it, lolz,i also lost liow :D anyone else here got this kinda experiance before aR???
