I need to look into this. Looks like the OP on the thread has the same issue, but worse.
Is it just me or is the leaf stack thicker on the driver side versus the pass side? Doesnt look right.
I didn't realize but one is the new spring, one is old. I took the pic during the transition - I dont have a good pic both new. Good eye - I guess i need to get under there and take better pics.
You could put a 1/2" lowering block under the high side but that will probably screw with the front end alignment.
Have the 1/4 panel changed ?... could be a bad alignment with the inner wheel well doing it
the ONLY one's I have seen that sit level and tight....are ones that have been "adjusted" via hangers, drop blocks, leaf tweek, front spring tweek
Refered to as the "detroit lean"
A better indication of whats going on would be a set of scales....4 corner weight would indicated more about where the issue is than a tapemeasure.
Also NOTED:...I have not seen springs with a band around the REAR portion of the spring pack??? Only ever seen them on the front side?
Had to check mine, could've sworn the stock ones only had it up front but my replacements have it front and back, does it change anything?
I like to tell myself I'm not OCD but I had to check the stance on my car after reading this.
Not sure where I went wrong or if I should even change it but my 78 sits a 1/2" higher on the driver's side, but that's with new stock height springs, poly bushings, qa1 shocks, 2 inch longer shackles, longer sway bar links and an axle out of a 3rd gen I spent a day quadruple checking the measurements on
Drivers side usually is 1/2” higher in the rear without a driver in the seat.
Now I'm even more concerned. Im going to take some better pics tonight.
