Will Anything happen to my car??

So here's the breakdown. My boyfriend installed my H&R springs and he accidently installed the back springs the wrong way. Instead of having the dead coils on the top, they're on the bottom. My car rides fine, but the fact that they're in the wrong way worries me. He's trying to fix the problem right now, but he can't get one of the bolts off to remove the springs because we tightened it with a compressor & it's too hard to remove manually. (We n longer have the compressor) Will anything happen to me while i'm driving? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't think anything major will happen, but you want to get the springs in the right way.

I suggest using your noggin....rather than brut force...get a big pipe that the driver can go into and torque on the bolt with that....this will for surely loosen the bolt...and if not it will snap it off:)

so make sure you are loosening it:)
you can rent a compressor from auto zone. I don't know that you will do any damage by having the springs upside down, but I wouldn't want to find out. I would suggest fixing it.
