so my gl's suspension has naturally sagged in the front with time, and aesthetically, this has always bothered me in a car. i wonder if there's a way to restore (or level out) the suspension on the cheep. (on an old truck i just took out a couple of leaf springs from the back!) i could go for new springs, but then i'd feel like i should replace the struts too etc..

 

can i just replace the front springs to bring it back to level (without doing the struts)? what other ideas are there?

 

cheers

I don't know what year your GL is but my front struts have a height adjustment. Maybe you can just crank them up a little.

o hey? is that from down in the wheel well or in the bay by the top of the strut? i've read into that a little, but i can't find consistent information on the front strut adjuster.

 

thanks!
