Question Helix front endlinks.

I just installed a set of Helix front endlinks on my '03 wagon and have a quick question for anyone who might know. The endlinks are full-pillowball with four spacers (on each end). The two spacers at the bottom of the endlink are the same length, however the two at the top are different lengths (one is about half as long). I installed them with the short top spacer on the side closest to the wheel to keep the link as close to vertical as possible. Does this make sense to anyone? Also, for anyone who has installed these endlinks, did you reinstall the stock washers or leave them off? I chose to leave them on after making sure that the washers will not contact the links as the pillowball connections move. Does anyone agree/disagree with this? Any input would be appreciated.

I will post a review after I have driven with them for awhile.


Thanks

I have the same question. Where does the longer spacer go?

Anybody know the answer to this? I just got mine in the mail tonight and want to put them on in the morning. Why can't they just come with a short, simple, photocopy of directions? Is that asking for too much?

re-bump

I've got the almost the same question + I think I don't have all the good parts to install them the good way :

lokk at the pics :

3 differents length of spacers and not even quantity :





Do you think Gruppe-S could have made a mistake sending bad parts ?

Install the spacers in such a way that when the suspension is loaded the endlinks are straight up and down, or as close as possible.

I'm running them, but I can't remember the exact locations of the spacers.
