Did u get ur car Corner Balanced? That should balance the weight of the car on the coil-overs.

set the suspension heights as high as they can go and its still slammed on the passenger side. you think the problem could be the springs?

sounds like you need to lower the front to take the wieght of the other corner.

As previously mentioned like 3 times I think I read...

Did you corner balance?

Car battery is in rear right of the trunk but that should not affect your ride height significantly.

Check out that installation and corner balance. Go to a pro shop!
