    i fitted my coilovers about a month ago and set the rears on the lowest setting which was not that low if fact.
    one side was about 10mm lower than the other so i thought i would let them settle and see how it looked. well now its settled the lower side is just right on the hight front but the other is still 10mm. now the only restriction to how low the car will sit is the sping or the bump stop.
    so i swopped the springs over and the same side is still higher. any ideas how this is possible?????

    This is gonna sound a bit lame but do you have a full tank of fuel? If not only thing I can think of is shock springs broken.

    abr bushes are all new as are the abr's, also the shock will not make the car sit high or low as the spring is the thing the car sits on... help
