OME springs question

Ok, so I got this used set of 933/942 springs.

I noticed that one spring is shorter then the other. I already figured out that the longer front one goes on the drivers side and the longer rear one on the passanger side.

But..the rear springs have a difference in hight of about an inch..is that normal?

shorter one goes on the side where the rear trac bar connects to the frame (passenger side) only guessing though...

That doesn't sound right.

I would think this is not normal. When you get springs for a specific amount of lift they are all going to be the same.

when lifted from stock, the jeep will "slightly" lean towards the passenger side because the trac bar will pull the frame down a LITTLE...but not much at all...then again they could have F!@#ed up the order...like i said..im just guessin...

Im in the same situation. I called arb about the same thing. They told me the longer ones go on the driver side unless you have a bumper with tire carrier that swings on the passenger side. In that case the longer rear one goes on the passenger side.

No so with OME.

Resetting the track bar bushings to the "new" normal ride height should totally eliminate that issue.

I have a relocator on the rear trackbar..

Anyway, can anyone confirm there is that much difference in spring hight on the rear springs?
