Is it even remotely possible that dampers and/or springs could be damaged from being off the ground for too long? I know this sounds like a funny question but the reason I'm asking is because I've had my car up on jack stands for 8 weeks to complete my turbo build. I took the car off the jack stands yesterday and the car is sitting lower than it was when I started. I have eibach pro springs and dampers all around. I'm thinking it's just from the extra weight of the turbo (cast iron manifold with hx35 turbo) and other components. I haven't driven on the street yet so that would tell me too. Let me know what you guys think.

Yea, that could be. I wouldn't think having the car jacked up would have anything to do w/ it.

No, what compresses springs is having weight on them for a long period of time, not having them relaxed. Probably just the added weight.
