Questions before I install springs...

I have a set of FRPP struts, shocks, and two sets of springs. I understand one set to be a 1" drop and the others are 1.5" (I think)- part #'s on the 1" set are: and on the 1.5" set: If you can verify, please do!
1. Why are the unloaded 1.5" rears longer than the 1" ones? (see pic 2)
2. Which way do the rears go- tightly wound coils up or down?
3. Does the front strut go togther as shown in pic 3? Maybe it will be clear when removing factory stuff.
4. I'm thinking about lowering the front 1", rear 1.5". Any reason not to do this?

Any other tips?

I think the rears can be installed either side up, I called FRPP tech and switched mine to tight colis up. I would install either both 1.0 inch or 1.5 inch, I did the 1.5's on my son's GT/CS, sometimes the back looks low. So I don't think I would mix them. The rears are easy to take in and out, so you could check both set s though. Good luck !

Does anybody know how much the 1" and the 1.5" FRPP springs will settle beyond the initial install height???
