    Thread: One side lower on coilovers

    1. 04-25-2012 11:00 AM #1
      Is there a reason why front right side is tucked under a fender while the left front isn't? I adjusted the coilovers to be the same before putting them in. Then tried shortening the left side even more but that only does little difference. Level ground and Racelands. 98 Passat V6 with 152k miles.

      Thanks fellas.

      My neuspeed springs sit slightly uneven, its because weight distribution left to right is not perfect. I'd say to adjust them slightly to get it even

      I'd say lower the high one a bit, and raise the low one a little. This should help get them closer. You may want to measure the height from center of the wheel to arch on both sides, then split the difference that way when raising/lowering.

      A science of vague assumptions based on debatable figures taken from inconclusive experiments and performed with instruments of problematic accuracy by persons of doubtful reliability and questionable mentality
