im 99% sure that the rear ones are different each side, the left being a little stiffer/taller to compensate for the weight of the fuel tank? maybe it takes longer for that side to settle who knows. if your not happy tho, id take it back

has the car been in an accedent?

mine hit a gutter at like 25km/h and that pushed the drivers front tower up abit. as a result the whole car sits tilted toward the front right.

the rear springs do have a side for each spring, make sure they are sitting in the holders properly.

worst comes to worst take it to a good suspension shop and get them to measure it all up for you.

hope it helps
Rushed.

I am pretty sure that one side is always a bit higher than the other when the car is just sitting there, i think its so that when the car is running it sits level, to compensate from the torque of the motor and drivetrain.

Really? I've never heard of that? Thought if anything it would have been because of he fuel tank.
