My Ride: 2001 330i
PSS9 question

I installed PSS9's on my 01' 330i. After a month, I think they have stopped settling. The strange thing (in my opinion) is that I have one strut whose collar position differs 9/16" from the other struts. In other words, for there to be an equal distance from the ground, through the center of each wheel, to the lip of the wheel well, I had to adjust my left rear strut 9/16" higher than the rest of the struts. I think I moved my right front strut up maybe 1/4". Do you think there might be a problem with my left rear spring or strut since it differs from the others?? I double checked the springs are the same and right side up. THANKS

The right side of your car is supposed to be a little bit higher so that when you're sitting in the driver's seat it all evens out.
