Default TEIN height adjustment oddness


I have my TEIN Super Streets set right at the bottom at the front, and 20mm up from the bottom on the rears. These are Japanese Super Streets so I have heard the springs are 50mm longer than the US ones, but it doesn't seem crazy low anyway.

My problem is that, although both left and right fronts are wound down as low as they can go, the car seems to be 10mm higher on the right than the left. The same applies on the rear but it isn't as extreme (7mm).

Do you know WTF could be causing this?

Measure and see if they (the shock bodies, springs, and threaded collers) are the same. They probably are, and it's just weight difference.

My passenger side has always been about 7mm lower than the driver side, all things being equal.
