Post ATT: OPIE, Tein S-tech/KYB AGX

Hey dude,

i know you have the S-tech/AGX set up, are u experiencing the ride height being uneven?? my driver front seems to be lower than the passenger front. and after checkin' thru the archives regarding the weight distribution. i found Impreza's left front weighs less than right front. so what do u think?

I'm not having any problems with the Tein/AGX setup. The car sits level, no sagging, no noises. The last time I measured the height of the car everything was fine. I'll check again when I get home tonight and post the measurements here.

I've got the medium springs, I measured them tonight and they are level. My lazy arse didn't write down the measurements and all I can remember is the rear is around 24.5" from the pavement to the top/center of the fender well. I think the front were between 26 & 27" but I'm not sure and to lazy to go measure again

You should measure ride height from the center of the wheel (the middle of the tiny center cap) to the metal in the center/top of the wheel well. There is a small black plastic piece that runs along the bottom, measure to the metal, not the plastic.

BLITZKRG-RS, you may have a bad spring, ask for an exchange. You could try moving the spring to the other side of the car and see if the problem follows it.

Thumbs up

Thanks guys!

i've already swapped the spring/shocks from one side to another b4 i posted this msg. but its still the same! the driver side is lower than passenger side...
i know its not my weight that made the springs go bad! (lol, i only weigh 130).. im in process looking further onto other weak suspension parts. so far i've already noticed the rear lateral link is slightly bent(my mechanic showed me the bent section while the car is on the lift), so that could cause the car to sit unevenly. causing LR to sag and RF to lift up a little.
i have the new lateral link from Dale Teague waiting to be put in. i hope this will cure the problem.

later
