    That's going to be an issue. Are you sure that he didnt mix up the front and rear springs? The rears have a really tight coil at the top. See my thread for the Eibach spring install:

    No issue at all, once you put the car's weight on them they will spread open and fit nice and snug. I just installed mine not even a month ago and that's exactly what happened. The car rides excellent.
