MK3 H&R springs

I recently purchased my first set of h&r springs, I've always used eibach before. I feel like my car sits uneven, the front seems higher even though the kit says 1.4" front 1.3" rear. Does anyone have any pictures or input?

Are you sure the springs were fully seated correctly?

I'd measure your fender to ground clearance to see if it is off or not.

You saw it cuz I tapped it

Yes I initially didn't have the mount lined up with bearing. But I pulled it back apart at lined it up perfect. From ground to fender its 25 15/16th front and 25 1/4 rear.

Take a measurement from the ground to the bottom of the rocker. The ground-fender should show different measurements if the car is 'leveled' due to the lower arch in the rear.

Also, how long have they been installed? It could take a little bit of time for the front to settle because they will have higher spring rates than the rear due to having more vehicular weight to control.

Can you post some pics?

It has been on for a few weeks. Then off for a correction then back on yesterday. I hate to say this, but I don't know how to post a picture on a thread from my phone.

If you're using FF Mobile, you just click on the little camera and select your pic. If you're using a browser, I think you have to go through a pic-hosting site like photobucket or imgur.

If you're on an i-phone, I have absolutely no idea but I'm sure a new model will be out soon

Are you on the mobile browser or are you using FF Mobile?

Step 1-Download free Tapatalk app.

Step 2-Enjoy ease of use and free pic uploads.

Step 3-After free pic uploads are used up, determine if small fee is justified in your use. If not, still enjoy free ease of use with no pic uploads.

Boom.
