Actually summer in comming....<p>anyways has anyone had uneven spring settling with Eibachs? reason I ask is that my driverside is lower than the other.<p>And no, I only weigh 200lbs.<p>

Re: Spring is settling! (tabasco)

less than 1/8" difference.<p>You need to have a very level surface to measure.

Re: (shagginwagon)

Mine? FWD.<p>This morning it looks even. Parked outside. Perhaps its where I park at work. You would think that a parking garage would be level though. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>All other cars around me look level.

My AWD is even side to side with the Eibachs, no difference from drivers to passengers. That's weird man.

I'd imagine you can get an 1/8" difference just by parking on an uneven surface. That's probably no big deal but an inch is absurd, why would it be that different from side to side?

Re: (NJGreenBudd)

Im begining to think it has something to do with the springs being cut. Both Shaggin and I . <p>But what are the chances of both of us having drivers lean on two different set ups? AWD and FWD<p>I know for a fact i cut mine EXACTLY the same...probally as did he. <p>I may do a switcher roo and see if that does anything.<br>

my car was uneven from the start...I'm starting to think I got two different shocks from the factory but my mother's 07 xc70 is like this as well.

mine was uneven, THEN i cut the shocks, and took it for a rip with friends in the back seat... it evened out a bit more, but the driver's side still seems to sit a tad lower

To counteract the driver side lean, stop eating donuts.<p>Orrrr, put sand bags on the passenger side, you pick.

Re: (850arrrsaylikepirate)

Most Volvos are a bit uneven side to side, but any more than 3/8" you should have the suspension checked out
