If you are adding after market shocks and springs, i'm asuming you have stock springs righ now. Most aftermarkets have augustable ride hights so once you have them installed, you can rase that side if you still need to.
hvae you been in an accident or anything? If all the structural components are okay (control arms, knuckles) then i would say it could only be a damper or a spring issue. Or maybe you have something heavy sitting on that side of the car????
Is it low in one corner or the whole side? Have you parked the car on a level surface and taken some measurements to determine just how off this is?
I think sometimes the driver's side springs can start to sag mroe over time because the car usually always has a greater load on that side.
thanks for the replies. just came home from work, but here it goes:
never been into an accident. front and back tires evenly inflated, same make and size. ride quality is normal. doesnt shake even at high speeds, though i notice it drifts a little to the left if i were to let go of the steering wheel.
and that's about it. i've never measured the height of the dip, but i can say it's low enough to notice it after looking for a while.
Just a lil FYI from a suspension tech.
Springs give you ride height NOT struts.
My .02 sagging pass side spring.
Did you measure the ride height with a tape measure?
Dont use the fender as a positive measurement point.Use the inner hinge of the frt LCA(lower control arm) to measure the frt.
Use the inner hinge of the rear LCA to measure the rear.
Then simply compare the readings.Any difference say bigger than 1/8 inch is noticeable by eye.
If you are planning on dropping the car anyway you will fix the problem with spring replacement.
But like I said my .02 sagging springs most likely.
