So new issue...lol.

Looked kinda cockeyed so I measured the wheelwell gap to tire, and from of fender to the ground on both sides. Passenger side is 1" higher than driver side. I have no idea what is causing this, but here is my thought for quick fix.

I need to bring the drivers side down .5 inch anyway, and passenger down 1.5". I am thinking cut 1/4 coil on driver side and 3/4 coil on passenger side.

Is it that simple or am I missing something sinister?

Measure to see if they are the same free length and the same number of coils. Is the wire the same diameter? Is there an insulator on both sides? Are the sway bar links the same length? If all is equal there is a chassis issue. BTW look at the rear springs too.

Possible it's body panels and not spring height? You might try to measure "inside the well" heights? Or floor to arm height? My passenger side was slightly higher, but it was the old springs.
