Well, whats in there now; how old?

If you need new shocks and you replace them the height will differ.

id say youve got standard shocks and springs. Mine does the exact same thing, a*** sits about 1 1/2 inches higher than the front

yep standard shocks r springs! left RHR shock is sounding like it is about rooted so i throught it was best 2 dump the ef in the weeds! just woundring on ppls throughts as king lows in the front would save alot of money not havin 2 buy struts n shocks. all the worries me is how it will sit tho

mine sat exactly the same with the standard shocks and springs, however, i got new sport shockies and low kings put into it all round, and now it sits a bit lower in the back now. I would like it to sit a tad bit lower in the front now to make it sit even

With same springs all round my car sits lower at the front that than the back.
My back is perfect but the front ia bout 2cm too low.
Not that i dont like it, but its not suitable with where i drive n how i like to turn into corners, tyres dont like the gaurds lol.

Will be evening it off asap, but its still drivable for now at least haha. :wink:

oh, i used bilstein shocks (1000% reccomended) with whiteline springs, already s**t over king springs, but they dropped bit lower than they were said to.
