Ok ever since i bought my car the right rear has been lower than the left rear. At the time of purchase the car was on Sprints so i didnt notice or keep them on for more than 24 hours. Since then i have installed stock 9c1 springs. At this point i noticed the right side being lower by about an inch. So i bought some SS springs. Still doing the same thing. Any ideas? i cant stand it. Could it be bad body bushings if so where are then how can i check em.
Thanks in advance for any ideas
Neil

Same for me (1/4 inch or half maybe) in the front passenger side...(body bushings maybe... Im waiting for a reply on that ) to tchek the bushing it probably best to lift the beast... if you want more explanation go to www.theherd.com
or theck there is a topic open right now on that

Are the springs properly indexed? If you don't have them turned the correct way in the pirch that can through it off by an inch or more. Look at the top pigtails of the rear springs, both R&L pigtails should point towards the driver sdie I believe. I had this same problem when I put my Hotchkis springs in, and I just put it on a lift, and turned the springs the correct way and all was level. My drop springs were "lose" enough so that when it was on a lift it was easy to turn without compressing the spring, with stock springs you may have to compress them....

Or, another possiblity is you have a bad bushing in one of your lower trailing arms, or one of the arms may even be bent.

Hope that helps, good luck.
