Very good. there was a TSB for this spring. most leave this spring out. for sure you did replace the shocks with A/C delco shocks and not OE!!! I have included this document, please review, there is a statement about how important the installation of the spring in the correct manner is. let me know what you think?
Harsh Ride or Line Installation Conern with Delco Shock Kit - keywords fit fitting harsh hose install instruction kit rear ride sheet spring suspension - (Jun 2, 2008)
Concerns when installing Delco shock kits for the listed models:
Concern 1: Concerns with connecting the lines to the shocks and the air compressor
Concern 2: Concern of harsh ride after installation
Do not replace the lines. After depleting the air from the system cut the lines at the shocks and install new Orings and fittings. See Illustrations in the instruction sheet included with the kit (steps 1, 2, & 3 per instructions in kit).
Install the Spring included in the kit.The following steps are most commonly missed:
Note: The spring inside the air dryer is under compression. Therefore, hold the air dryer cap when removing it to avoid it's sudden release.
sorry for the confusion, the spring should be installed. most people leave the spring out becuse they just miss that step. not sure why the dealer told you the shocks where OE. but clearly you got A/C delco shocks and not OE.
