Previous owner of my 2007 1.25 fiesta changed the front left shock and spring (bendix 060886GLB ) just before I bought it. I changed the front right shock, spring, bump stop, bearing, top mount. The ride height is 20mm higher on the side I changed. The shock I took off looks identical to the one i put on. The new spring is monroe SE2461. From research There are 2 types, round (old) oval (new) .The new spring i put on looks like it could only go on one way, But the old spring looks like symetrical. Is the previous owner spring wrong? Is my spring wrong? I dont want to have to but allnew springs and shocks. Any ideas?
