    Hello,

    Just a quick question I can't find the answer anywhere.

    On the sided suspension springs (like the NRC9449/NRC9448) the diver side/passenger side means actually the driver's side on LHD or RHD vehicles or it means the right side of the vehicle (driveline) or left side?

    I know, probably a silly question.

    Thanks in advance

    So, you say to mount the "driver side" spring on the right of the vehicle, even on a LHD?
    Thanks

    No - curiously the drivers side is side where the driver sits whether it be RH or LHD!

    1. Have you got LH or RH drive?
    2. Do springs say:
    a. 'Drivers side (LHD)'
    b. 'Drivers side (RHD)'
    c. 'Drivers side'

    If the answer is 2c then the drivers spring go on the side the drivers does whether it is LH or RHD.
    If the answer is 2a or 2b then it goes on the LH or RH respectivly

    The longer springs go on the same side as the driver - whichever side that is, so out the longer springs on the side with the steering wheel......

    Replaced the front springs, well under 2h which is a new record for me. Installed NRC9449 and NRC9448 (110/90 HD fronts or 90 std rears) plus RBC100111 Disco TD5 rubber isolators. Awesome setup.
    Now waiting for the new rear springs to arrive. Was running RR police spec springs on all 4 corners, but they are way too soft and too tall up front, so the std shocks were over extending on bumps and potholes.

    Installed the longer springs on the left and now the right side is only 10mm lower, so I'm quite happy.

    Thanks for all the answers
