Ride height lower on one side than other

Hey everyone,

Could really use some insight here. Seems my rear suspension is about 1/8 to 1/4 lower on rear right than on rear left. Cr is dropped on Dinan Stage 1 suspension. Ideas anyone? Help would really be appreciated, thanks!

You just installed the Dinan? Was it a slow process?

it's designed like that cuz there is always a driver (weight) in the car on the left side and not always a passanger (weight) on the right side... makes sense... as soon as you get in your car it's all balanced!

Somehow I really don't think that's the case since its after the install it didn't do that

It was somewhat because of a combination of things chief among which was the dealer which screwed things up multiple times

It was somewhat slow I guess, mostly because the dealership screwed it up a number of times

I have noticed that if I jack up my car with the ebrake on it will ride "high" when I put it back down for about 8-10hours until every settles down.... Not sure if this helps though

Problem is resolved everyone, turns out too much negative camber was dialed in on the right rear causing the car to do the squats and therefore lowering the ride height. Man those Hunter alignment machines are sweet pieces to have in your shop. My guy tells me the cost is $28k for a Hunter.
