I recently installed RideTech HQ shocks on my C5Zo6. I adjusted the springs as low as they would go in order to get the ride height I wanted. Now when I raise the car to work on it, there is a 2" gap between the top of the spring and the spring perch. I know the GRM c5 project car has the same type of shocks. Did the same situation occur on the GRM car? If so, what did you do to address the situation?

Typically you install a set of helper springs that fully compress when loaded but keep everything located properly when drooped

I agree, as we have hundreds of clients that experience this with stiffer rate springs. 

We carry these "Take Up Springs" HERE

Best wishes.
