    A few months ago I replaced my struts. my oem struts where shot had 140k on them. I went and picked up napa quickstruts. Now im noticing my passenger side is riding a inch lower then drivers side. Ive replaced sway bar links and bushing at the same time due to them being wore out. What would cause it to sit uneven. Its not affecting drive ability it just annoys me.

    Maybe a bad spring from the factory? Or it wasn't sitting properly in the notches, either in the mount or at the bottom.

    Yes, double check the install and make sure the strut and spring are sitting in the seats correctly. If so, it's most likely a sagging spring.

    I haven't had time to check it out. Figured since they was quickstruts wouldn't have no problem with them. Not sure if its related but i did a g80 swap a while back and from talking with a few people that the rear springs have different spring rates and could cause this. Im not sure since the rear is sitting level.

    ok a little update. had my truck at a friends shop last weekend and checked and everything is seated correctly. I did measure and my passenger side front and back is close to a inch lower. im thinking about switching around the rear springs and see if it makes a difference.
