New spring Eibach

Hi guys...i just finished installing my new spring pro-kit and notice that the back of the car is not at the same height from both side...the pigtails are on the good direction toward the driver side...did this happen to somebody here?

I have heard of Eibachs doing that, more specifically the pro kit springs. You could wait a few days or a week and see if the car settles correctly. If not you may have to offset the lower side.

Do you have any isolators on the rear springs?

No problem man...you're not the first person to have this happen. It's just the way the Eibachs are sometimes.

Looking back at your first post though, you said the pigtails are facing the drivers side. Is that how the factory ones were positioned? If not I believe they are supposed to be positioned inwards towards the middle of the car. This will cause the springs to seat "longer" than the others and make them appear to have sagged.

I even took a picture of each side before installing the new ones just to be sure and yes the pigtails for rear have to face the driver side.I've been told that 99-04 are made that way but we can't see that with the stock suspension.

Alright, it sounds like you did everything correctly then. I would wait a week and see if she levels out. If not, you could try offsetting with isos or I've heard upgrading to aftermarket UCA/LCA's will help. Obviously that's more money but it never hurts to upgrade them anyways.
