I think from the floor to the arch the driver's side was 25.5inches and the passenger was 25.75 inches. Something like that, I'm not really fussed about it, don't really notice it unless.

Around 5-6mm diff then give or take, it bugs me sometimes, but other day looked o.k. I do have annoying faint knocking in the area where my pedals are and the clicking of the clutch is annoying, I just can’t find anything or even get to have a good look. By any chance is they some type of split pin above the return coil springs through the a location pin, been trying to find break down on Honda parts

Make sure you are on level, I measure from the bottom of my alloy central, to the arch. I think if you measure from the floor it won’t give you a defi measure because you have different tyre pressure I think.

I think that’s when you measure from the floor, if you measure from the bottom of the alloys this shouldn’t change even if a they’re is under pressure.

correct always measure from a fixed point on the wheel not the floor

I measured the fronts it's pretty even at 24.8inch each side so exact. even visually one side does not look lower than the other

From bottom of alloy to top of wheel arch

I dunno why yours is out perhaps the way top mounts are torqued or something which affects spring pressure.

Coils are pre set from factory so plug and play in essence

Shouldn't be that much really would it make it cheaper if you bought the paint lol

Bodyshop prices vary so much but I mean 250 + the cost of the spolier is alot of dosh

Mine is in the garage to get the AC sorted

Hopefully it's sorted once and for all! Cost me an arm and a leg!
