Re: Height Adjustment

First always run the correct tire pressure in all four tires. Second your car was obviously set up off the car to have the same settings on each front strut. The driver's side of the car is a lot heavier than the passenger side because of the layout of the car. So you either have to raise the driver's side a little or lower the passenger side a little to make it even. Always check ride height with the car on level ground to make sure it is even.

Re: Height Adjustment

I have the same issue and it seems to be a common problem among xB's for the driver's right side to be slightly higher than the left especially the rear passenger side wheel well.

That's because a lot of people don't know what their doing when slapping coils on their car. You need to measure. Measure again. Measure with weight approximate to yours in the driver seat. Then lower/raise to adjust to meet your measurements to make it level.

True, but I had S-Tech's with waydoo sportivos before and it was the same thing. Car handles and drives perfect, its more of a visual deal than anything and its like 1/4" off. With the S-techs it was like 1/2" off.

Sounds like you have the in-channel window visors. Are they made by Wade?
