    Lowered Camaro Gangster Lean

    Ive noticed it always seemed to lean on the passengers side, but since i have lowered it the difference on the front is about a 1/4 inch, its driving me nuts, the rears are even but the front is the only difference. If someone could lead me in the right direction to start id very much need it.

    don't know for sure, but seems legit to me. Solves the problem on every camaro/ TA i've seen

    I don't understand why they did that.. They could have just put a better system under it in the first place.. A sign of cheapness if you ask me..

    OMG I thought I was the only one with this problem! I never noticed it until I put my granatelli springs on. The passengers side is about 1/4in lower, it pisses me off so much when I look at it from the back My friends have pointed it out several times, looks damn cheap....

    tell me more about these please, Is it safe to just put them on one corner of the car? Are they generically made or specific for cars?

    maybe something to similar to this, if not I'd still try these out.. They're usually used on worn out springs usually to help give it a little boost, but it may provide enough of a lift
    (.25" or so) on the drivers side to help balance it out.

    sweet, is it safe to put more than 1 rubber on a spring at a time or would you just get a harder rubber?

    I personally prefer the rubber ones though.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking, but its best to get 1 spacer on each side of the spring.. Slide them up to the tightest part between the coils (top or bottom of the spring) to get the best results and to keep them from coming out accidently
