ya i had this prob when i installed coilovers on my buds eclipse. LOL one side was correct then on the other side one was upside down and the front one was on the back and the back one was on the front. Ooopps too much alchohol. It was soooo off balance.

I posted a similar question on another forum before and this is what I got back. Someone said that since the engine is more on the left side and tranny on the right, the left side of the car may sit lower since there's more weight there. Don't quote me on this, I'm not saying I agree with the person that said this.

Just something for you to take into consideration, whether its bs or not.

to properly adjust hieght with coilovers you need to corner weigh the car everytime. Are you using coilover sleeves? or is it a real coilover suspension.

depensing on how often you really adjust height and if performance is key to your goals, perhaps you should switch to springs.

good luck

i have had the same problem when i re-installed my stock suspension, my rear right suspension was sitting higher than the rest of the car (this also happened when my car was lowered). This drove me nuts, and i took it to the dealer and they told me it was fine, but i was still was unsatified. So drove around and every integra i saw, and i compared the height, and it was the same. So dont worry, u can lower just that one side, more.

did the springs seat properly after you put it back on the ground? are they good quality springs? you might have just got a cruddy set (like apc or something off ebay) and the spring rates aren't matched... just my thoughts...
