Hi Craig

Personally I would still check with Marlin. Surely they should be supplying everything you need?

Also don't assume everything is correct. The rear spring mounts on my E30 based Sportster were in the wrong place (over 25mm out). Several builders of the same era had this problem. Rather than take the chassis back to Marlin for correction I moved the spring plates on the suspension arms so they lined up.

Whatever solution you choose, as you have coil overs, remember the complete weight of the rear of the car and the dynamic load from suspension movement is taken on the top mount.

Happy building!
