yeah if you swap out the struts and spings your fine, make sure they are seeded correctly and that your tire pressure is the same on both sides.

This may sounds dumb, but are you on totally level ground? Also, is there anything heavy on one side? i.e. Sub-box, the old springs, a great big fat person in the seat? Also, maybe you got one of the front and rear springs reversed? Beyond that, I have no freakin' clue.

Sounds like you're gonna have to add some ballast to the passenger side. Maybe since the springs were used they could be worn out on one side. Like maybe whoever had them first had a bunch of weight on one side of the car.

something’s not right, if I was you I would take them off and disassemble then and then reinstall... if you have the time and know how.

i had the exact same problem. i just said fuck it and maybe ill just settle more. week went by and not much difference. its been over a month now and its about 1/4" higher on my passenger side, but you really cant notice it unless you try to measure it with your fingers. i hardly drive my car to places with a passenger, i usually carpool if i ever go out so maybe thats why its taking longer to setting in on the other side.

You're from the states right?

Find a fat gf.

Otherwise I seriously have no solution for this. I wonder why its like that.. Maybe your friend bought the fake Tein springs.
