Did you lower your car back down when you noticed the looseness? If not that may be the problem. take the car off jacks and then you have a true gouge of whats goin on.

I have hotchkis springs...yes it will be smaller...when you put it back on the car just make sure the spring and strut are all lined up. The weight of the car will hold it down just fine...don't worry about it. thumbsup
