I have that problem too. At first I thought that the dealership messed something up when they put the new springs on, but they said that it just sits that way sometimes. I'd love to find a solution to it. Anyone have any suggestions?

did u guys fix this problem yet?
Actually I did find a solution to this, I just purchased an adjustable spring riser/spacer for $9 from a local automotive shop. Usually what you will see is when one side is higher in the back, the opposite side in the front will be lower. This solution was cheap and worked out perfect.

When I pick my car up from the dealer wednesday or thursday of next week, I am going to ask the techs why its like that. I hate that because the wheel arch gap is even more noticeable on one side!

Same...

I have this same problem as well... I have the L-Tuned springs. I am working on getting the dealer to replace at least the one spring to see if this will fix it. My driver side front is lower than the passenger side, and the back is uneven as described. That spring shim sounds like a possibility as well...

Will keep you posted on outcome...

Do most of you who have this problem drive alone most of the time? It's the way the spring settles in. One side (driver side) will most likely be lower since most of the weight is on that side. This mostly happens on aftermarket springs, but I never see it happen on stock ones.
