Default One side sits higher with new struts and lowering springs.

Hello again. I just got done putting new tokico blue struts and lowering springs in my cruiser and one sits sits about 1" higher than the other. Double checked everything and I can't see were I might have went wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

1 inch incorrect variance per axle is a lot!

Which side is it and what position front or rear.

What brand spring did you get.

If the spring are from a common source they will have a spring number on them to which you can compare the positions to insure they are were not mis-boxed. If they are from a generic company ....well good luck with that then!!??. You would need to remove them measure both he static height and spring diameter.

By your information you probably did not measure on a flat level ground the 4 points of height before your suspension upgrade? If you had it would have helped to isolate the problem?

Nitro, could it also be that maybe he is running on the factory spring perch mounts (whatever the real nae for the bushing is called) and this could cause a problem? I was wondering if these needed to be changed also when lowering the PT.
Just trying to get an idea of what ALL is needed when lowering this car.
