new springs results in uneven ride height

Post by nofeeling » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:05 pm

Just fitted 2 front springs ,drop links and a top mount bearing o/s .

Car is def about 10 mm lower on drivers side .

I know the new springs need to settle but I`m thinking could low tyre pressures be the cause .

ps , far too cold to check pressures at the minute .

Are the springs seated properly in the strut and top mount?

Yes,both seated at bottom ,end of pigtail in position,top ,they just sit under mount .

Hopefully a week or two driving will help them settle .
