Uneven ride height
Posted 23 August 2011 - 04:15 PM
I first noticed the tail end of my car looked lower than others I would see. I finally got around to measuring the height from the ground to the top of the wheel arch and noticed that the left rear is 2 inches closer to the ground than the right. I did not measure the front.
I suppose it's possible that my rear struts, or at least one, is toast. Is it more likely the springs? Would the difference seen in the rear come from the certainly toasted front struts?
Is it the springs or the struts?
Safety concerns from this?

Shocks are for rebound 95%
the other 5% on each is not much to think on.
You can take a shock cartridge and press it in and it will stay and hold, where you push a spring in and it comes right back out.
You probably have the saggy butt syndrome..weak springs.
weak springs will take a toll on shocks over time as well.
