    Do you have a fatty sitting in the passanger seat when you measured it? No in all seriouness did you swap the springs from side to side? does everything else look to be in line under there?

    either something is binding or one of the mounts is bent. do you have the isolaters on both sides still or is one of them missing?

    I have this problem too... At first I thought that one wheel is bigger than the other ( I have two different sets of wheels) thus changing ride height. Although, no matter which tire size I put, the passenger side always sags and the driver side is considerably lifter. What is this? Too many drifted corners to the right?

    The isolaters are the little pieces of rubber between the spring and the mount.

    did you check the isolaters yet? Sounds like one is missing.
