I know exactly what your talking about. I asked the tech a mcgaughy's why the spring was like that.He said it's a progressive spring- softer at the top stiffer at the bottom. I asked how the top worked when the top 4 coils sit on each other. He didn't know!!!

Looks good, its sitting low in the front, a little low for me but to each his own.
I have the crew but seeing all these RCSB dropped makes me want to go buy antoher one and and just fix it up and leave the CCSB like it is.

The springs are designed that way so that when the suspension decompresses the tighter-wound coils expand open and softly transition the suspension through the compression phase of the suspension cycle, hence the term "progressive-rate". Just helps soften the ride some, unless you cut them off, lol!
