R33 GTST S2 front uneven

Recommended Posts

Hello, hope you can help, I have R33 GTST with HKS coilovers. The driver side sits about 20mm lower than the passenger side. I have removed the coilovers to check they are the same height sides, also swapped the coilovers left to right and the same side is lower. So I assume my coilovers are fine. What could be causing this issue? Car alignment was done a while ago. Thanks

It isn't really normal to have coilovers at the same seat height to achieve an even ride height, particularly if you are measuring height with a driver on board (as there generally is when the car is moving).  After a corner weighting process where the ride height with driver is set reasonably even on the diagonals for best balance, the uncompressed spring ride heights are often very different.

Thanks for your reply, I understand the extra weight of the driver, but the skyline should be well balanced without the driver with even coilovers. But the drive side is 20mm lower regardless of which coil over I out in. This should be higher to account for the extra  driver not lower.

Couple of thoughts:

Adjustable sway bar links not even.

Pre-load on front or rear sway bars.

Rear shocks uneven, try swapping them L<>R.
