    Cool springs and shocks

    I bought new springs (Eibach pro kit) and shocks for the rear only cause the front have been replaced. Belstien on the rear. for the reason of buying new springs and rear shocks is because the right rear side sits a lil lower than the left side and it's still the same after installing every thing. Don't know what those black rubber mounts that go on top of the spings (rear) r called but they r perfectly fine. Has any body have any idea what could it b ?
    Thanks in advance

    I know a phb only centers the rear but maybe it could solve the problem if you had an adjustable one..

    has the car been in an accident in the past?

    That issue is very common with fbodies. The most common theory on why, GM did it on purpose so when the driver gets in, the weight balances out the stance. To test it, have someone set in the driver seat while you look at it from outside and see if it balances that way.

    You do need an adjustable panhard bar with lowering springs as well.

    Yes, it needs to be adjustable.
