Anybody knows if the AMC Eagle coil springs may be fitted on any side, or them are specific each one for driver and passenger side. I heard the Eagle coil springs are designed for each side, and them are differents, but these ones looks very similar and I dont know which one must be fitted on each car side.

I bought these ones from an 4 cylinder SX-4 to lower the front suspension of my 6 cylinder AMC Eagle Wagon

they are a tad different on each side to compensate for weight of the engine (I believe). I have read about folks using javelin springs to replace saggy front coils and the car has a slight lean because the jav springs are the same height

Yup, stock Cherokees are the same way, the drivers side spring or left, will be slightly heavier gauge than the right.

A friend told me the next:
I´ve read that left/right spring thing too. And there were different springs if you had A/C or no A/C...
And of course that six and four cylinder difference...
My 84 wagon has mixed springs. I don´t know what there are...
Springs from the four cylinder are weakest, so they could lower the front suspension.
Remember if you lower front too much lower arm will hit that rubber stop.
I had once an wild idea, if I cut that front crossmember around those rubber stops...
I had a protouring like 4x4 AMC Hornet on my mind...


Another friend told the next:
The drivers side will have an extra coil or 2 IIRC.

And Wayne from Sibum’s Auto Parts:
There is no R or L, both are same.

IIRC, part numbers in matching parts that end in an odd number go to driver's side, but that may be Ford

With a micrometer or calipers, measure the diameter of the wire. If one is thicker, put it on the passenger side.

I will check the measure to find any differences between the two springs. Thanks Eaglefreek

Relative to the "IIRC", what is the meaning of it. I dont know what is an IIRC, is a label or a reference number?

Thanks to all the people from AMCevolution

Everyone was a newbie once. ;)


Idiots are those who refuse to learn.
