do all springs have the same lenght? OME springs p.e. are a bit higher at the drivers side because it will sag more on the drivers side when you drive alone.

drive some miles and the springs will sag a bit. after changing the front springs on a friends bmw itr was a bit higher in the front. after a few miles it was fixed and it came down.

how much higher is your drivers side?

The RC lift has a higher rate spring for the passenger side. Make sure you put the springs on the correct side. They should have been marked.

then he is a winner because he already installed the right spring at the drivers side. so he doesn´t have to change the front springs.
i hope that he will be as lucky with the rear springs...

i don´t think that there are different spring rates.the springs from the drivers side should only be a bit longer.

here you can see that difference on some 3" grany cherokee OME springs:

This is correct, there are different spring rates for driver, and passenger side of your lift. It should be well labeled.

Thank you Blu. I guess I should know since I have that lift myself.
