That will depend on the amount of pre-load you have... if you pre-load it enough you'll never be able to spin it, there's just too much force. Also if you're running the upper rubber sheet you'll also be unable to spin it. We use (and sell) Swift thrust washers which will help allow it to spin, however with enough pre-load you'll have to adjust height off the car. This is where doing proper height calculations comes in very handy... we can get within 1mm ride height through our calculations of pre-load, required height, spring rate, etc. (to do this willy nilly through trial and error would be the most absolutely tedious and laborious process ever).

Thanks! Made in the USA out of aerospace grade aluminum. 40% lighter than the standard mount and significantly stiffer!
