should only have one

looks like blue is an after thought (heydarrel ya think we should put this here to keep her from saggin when your wife gets in)

the one on the right is correct

the other is a cargo shock? you can buy regular shocks with springs on them.

X2...that is a interesting set up you have there. I've seen people do that on top of sagging leaf springs, but never add extra coil springs next to existing coils.

X3....s/b only 1 on each side. The cargo shocks are designed to maintain ride height under heavy loads. That is quite a set up...I'm also at a loss to even think why someone would have done that. Wonder if someone was hauling moonshine or something @ one point in time. Question
LOL

Be careful taking those out. The rears are not under as much compression as the fronts but still...

that sounds like it's referring to drag racing. That would be opposite of what you would want, it should squat to aid in traction. With it all stiff it would either have no traction or worse wheel hop like crazy. I would say take out the misplaced springs and see how it rides.

Not necessarily. To aid traction you do not want the car to squat, you want it to lift in the rear ( called anti-squay ) to shove the tires down to the ground. The other option would be to stiffen the rear and gain height to make it rotate a little better kind of like an old gasser.

As far as the Guna goes, that has to ride like an empty dump truck.
