TRD springs uneven?

    I just lowered my car this past weekend with the TRD springs with a buddy of mine. All went well but now when i look at the car it seems that the left rear is slightly lower than the rest of the car. It-s only about 1 finger or so but it-s kind of annoying to see that this one side is a little lower. Did anyone else with TRD springs have this problem, and would this be caused by maybe the fuel tank being located on the rear left?
    yes, i also did the drop myself, and my left rear i can barely fit 1 finger underneath, the back right i can fit 2, and the front i can fit like 2 1/2 or 3. The front sits noticably higher than the back, that is fine and normal but my left and right shouldnt be uneven. I also have the Trd struts/shocks. I am fed up with it and getting ready to buy tein s-techs and get the factory 18-s.
    same here with the strut/spring combo. Im thinking about getting hotchkis springs to see if its not just the shocks.
    Just an idea, but perhaps you put one of the front spings on the rear of the car and one of the rear springs on the front of the car?I know that the front spring is 18% stiffer and the rear is 26% stiffer.
    Another thing to consider is that the springs and stock shocks might be giving uneven wear.

    you would know if you did that cuz the springs are totally different
    I-m assuming these are the only cases of this mishap?
    i checked again on a level surface and my springs are even for the trd. 1 finger in the back 3 in the front. I am still switching to s-techs in the future for gap to be even on all four corners.
    Aren-t the TRD springs supposed to drop the front lower than the rear?
    yes but the problem that was happening was the left back was lower than everything else.
    But you rechecked, and it-s level now right?Anyone else w/ TRD springs experience this problem?
    yup, mine is level now. dont know about anyone else with the problem.
    My TC was uneven but it has leveled out after about 2k miles. I get 1.5 to 2 fingers between tire and wheel well.
    after lowering my car with the trd springs i noticed too that the gap in the rear is smaller than the gap in the front tires...i see that this difference has bothered many people but even though the gap is uneven in the wheel wells, overall the car sits evenly all around here is the thread that has the pics of my carhttp://www.clubsciontc.co...=viewtopic&t=3958
    Was it worth the investment? What-s the ride like?
    the ride feels just like stock...and i can tell that there isnt that much bodyroll anymore when i take those fast corners...the car handles a lot better with the springs....
    Damn, I-m highly contemplating getting them, for warranty reasons.Get them installed correctly, and nothing to worry. I-m just set back by the uneven drop heights...
