Adjusting coiler ride height
I fitted some meisters last week, everything looked okay but I noticed the car was slightly lower on the n/s, so today I jacked the front end up, I set the ride height exactly the same on both sides measuring between the bottom collar and the upper one that sits below the spring. When I dropped the car back down the n/s seemed even further out than before, so I lowered the n/s coilover on its own and put the wheel back on, again it was still out. I repeated the process about 4-5 times until the distance between the the collars on the n/s is 3.5 cm and on the o/s is 7cm!
The car now sits level but the coilovers are set at completely different heights, I'm not going to drive it because it can't be right at all, I've set the preload to the same on both sides equally so that isn't the problem. Any ideas what it could be?
