Hi All - I just finished mini tub project and installed a between the frame rail coil over suspension kit.

My concern is the passenger side coil over spring had to be tightened almost 2" more than the drivers side to make the ride height equal on both sides.
The springs are 12" 110 lbs.

Any one know why this is?
I do not have the car weights for each wheel, only the front weight at 2060 lbs. and the rear weight at 1420 lbs.

The differential tubs measure the same height from the ground
The upper cross tubing where the upper shock mounts measure the same to the ground
The frame to the ground measures the same on both sides
The front end ride height is equal on both sides
the lower coil over brackets that are welded on the differential tube are the same height from the ground

totally do not know why this is
thanks jeff

Switch rear springs left to right and re-check. Maybe one is stronger that another. If not, check for any binding read suspension, bushings, ect. Lube,lube,lube.
