    gap differences

    I noticed that the left gap in the rear is smaller than the right gap.

    It was like that with the stock spings and replacing both the spring and struts with Neuspeed ones didn't change anything...


    Anyone got something similar?


    (also, my car is higher in the front than in the back)

    yeah my car is higher at the front than the back ! ( i am all stock ! ) and i really want to lower it from the front !

    Im guessing that the front needs to travel more due to the extra weight from the engine.

    I think it has to do with the way the car body settles over time, and the body flexes. Given most of the weight in the cars given life is on the left side (over here anyway), it will settle and twist that way.
    Short of getting a new car, only thing to do to is maybe put a spacer on top of your spring in the back that is lowest, or get coilovers, put some levels on all fourr sides of your car, and get it there by dialing in each corner til it's even.
