my s60r sagged on one side (driver side) and I could not find anything wrong with suspension so I gave Ipd's rear spring adjusters a try...it helped...Thanks Ipd. :thumbup:

Did you install these on just one side? I just bought these for the same reason that you did, uneven on one side. If I only install on the drivers side, would that screw up the handling, due to uneven spring rates?

1. yes
2. no

the most you'll gain 1/4 of an inch in height.

For all the custom fabrication, hard work and good effort you put into your SR, you still have the Autohaus plate surround? You have amusing priorities.

Interesting, I noticed that my SR sags on the driver side as well...

Thanks dougy, I'll probably do this when I do my spring seats.

my wife's R is lower on the drivers side but in the front only. Its about 1/4" lower than front passenger side. Same fix?

no, this is for rear only...maybe your upper strut spring seat is busted? really 1/4 is not bad at all...if all is well, i'd leave it alone.

Yeah, swapped out strut for another one I had at the shop. Car got smoother. Weird thing is the spring is more compressed on that side, like there is 100lbs sitting on it. Oh well.
