How's it going everyone? After a considerable search through the forum for answers and a couple calls to eibach in corona, ca I am stumped. The lady I spoke to seemed uninformed but did come to the conclusion that it was irregular for my passenger front side to sit lower than the driver side. I did the proverbial finger gap measure for maximum accuracy (sarcasm) and have found the passenger side to sit lower by a staggering 1 finger gap. It's more of an annoyance than anything since the untrained eye could not distinguish such a small difference.
My main questions would be
a) has anyone else run into this issue?
B) does this issue resolve itself after it has settled more?
C) if b is out of the question is there something I need to take a second look at? D) how do I cope with this? Lol

My thoughts would be that the weight distribution due to steering, engine and drivetrain components etc. etc. would cause one side to settle down quicker than the other. And wishfully thinking eventually it'll even out.

Any answers, questions, funny, mean, nice, helpful and/or informative responses will be gratefully appreciated. If you took the time to read all this you are boss.. Thanks again!!!!

You do sometimes need to give it time for the springs to settle. Another thing is that they do this on certain kinds of springs so that your car sits even when you get inside it. If you ever look at an old car the drivers side will always be sitting lower because that side is always pushed down.

Yeah I was google searching and stumbled upon a BMW forum thread stating the same about their cars sitting higher on the driver side. Didnt think it applied to us. But if that's the case then you've given me a little relief. Thanks for the reply.. Ill wait another week then start coping. Haha. On another note these springs cause me to oversteer 0_0.

Ok, grabbing at straws here but just for kicks sit in the car and have somebody measure it (before and after) and see if any difference then get a passenger and do the same thing with dr/pass in it...
I've never heard of this from people I've sold Eibachs to so just throwing something out there.....good luck!

As mentioned in the previous post. Some makes and models come higher on the driver side because most people don't drive passengers on a daily drive. Cars even come from the factory higher on the drive side because over time as the driver continuously sits the springs will start to settle/sag. Not sure of this helps but thought I'd share.

Thanks versaspeed I think I'll do just that later haha. As for the factory setup being as such.. If anyone has a stock ride that could do a quick measurement of the passenger and driver fender gap and check for a difference, id appreciate that. It could possibly validate or debunk the theory. Thank you also uversame. Alright guys ill still be patient and see what unfolds in the next week. I'm kind of anal though, so i might end up taking apart the strut assembly again to see if I did anything wrong. Otherwise ill accept the difference and pretend its a factory bimmer-like setup. Lol. Peace my fellow versans. Have a great day.. The choice is yours.
