    Title says it all: How much difference in hieght side to side is acceptable? I checked the frame for square and it came out good. I can visably see one of my rear springs is sagged more (passenger side) than the other. About 3/4"-1" at the frame difference. Should I consider new springs or is this amount fairly common?

    The spring's are probably sagging on that side, how many mile's, and have the spring's been rearced? Rearcing, only last's about a year, and then they just sag again. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    They are the original stockers. There is a 3.5" block under them.
