but thats the reason why you have rear left and rear right springs. the right hand side are slightly longer and stiffere to accomodate for the driver and the fuel tank, other wise if were both springs were even then the car would sag on one side.

Thanks

mines the same also but i have ultra low springs in mine, its about 1.5cm higher on the drivers side. It annoys me as the passenger side sits excellent but the drivers is a little higher. I was just thinking of cutting the spring insulator in half so it drops it a little, but surely thats not they reason why it sits higher..

Might get under the car tomorrow and have another look at it while i change the rear bushes.
