I should be posting this in the wheel/tire forum, but this is urgent.

I'm doing a suspension install tomorrow and need to determine if my springs are OEM or not. I'm going with bilsteins. The prev owner stated that the susp was stock, but I'm skeptical and want to double check before I do an install. I will post pics of my springs as soon as I get a wheel off. For now, can someone post a pic or tell me how to ID my springs to determine stock or aftermarket?

Thanks,

Paul
 
I think most aftermarket springs would be powder coated a different color. If I remember right, H&R springs are red and Eibachs are orange. If they are black then they are probably OEM. You can also look for a part number.
 
IIRC only the OEM have the rubber covers.

Cheers,

AR
