Same rear springs but uneven ride height!!! PLEASE HELP

Hey guys,

I have a vl calais and I have king springs superlows in the rear however the ride height is 30mm different from both sides...the driver side is lower. I tried replacing the same springs, swapping them around and also taking out the panhard rod to see it make a difference but it doesn't.

Can anyone please help me in how to fix this?

Cheers

Ryan

Is it the drivers side sitting lower? It’s very common in VL’s. Never known a fix other then using a thicker rubber insulator on the low side.

your springs have gone soft, get a new pair and the problem will go away.

happens to all cars eventually, if you drive solo the majority of the time the right spring is working harder.
