I have a d44 front with stock length radius arms, I have a shim under the front of the lower spring mount and a u bolt on the backside of the upper coil tower. With these the springs have little or no bow. I recently installed 7* C bushings instead of 4* bushings I had. I also replaced the frame mount bushings and lubed them with anti-seize and wristed the pass arm. Anyway after getting back from my first trail ride since then (never took the bolt out of the wristed arm) I find my shock bashed in and paint missing from my spring. What happened and how do I prevent it from occuring again?

Will post pics soon...

Here's some pics. I think I hit something with the front of the spring that pushed it into the shock.
