Oh, I forgot to update this. I had my RTABs changed and since doing that, I can't say I've noticed the passenger side sag anymore. Or for that matter, my 255/35 rears rubbing.

Yup, replaced my RTAB with urethane from UUC...still sags though.

I dont have money for coils and it seems like everything is in perfect mechanical order underneath the car. I think im just going to buy 15mm spring pads and just put it under the sagging side. Cant affect handling since im not changing spring rates.

Ill update this once i do it.

I'm having the same problem with mine too. I actually have new springs and rubber pads that are going to be replaced here soon. I bought the eiback prokit springs and new shocks and struts too. I hope it fixes the problem, but if not I'll be checking my RTAB's next. thank god those are fairly inexpensive. I'll post as soon as i do if it fixes the problem or not. I'm hoping its just spring sag since i already have new springs, I'm just waiting on my tires before i do it though so it may be a couple of weeks.

well guys I'm at a loss as of right now. I replaced my rtabs, shocks, and springs all the way around this weekend. I still see some lean on the passenger side, but it sems to be less than it was before. I'm going to call up the dealership on monday to schedule an appt for an alignment. Hopefully that will finish off the rest of this leaning problem. If not I'm going to go ballistic!
