This will sound a bit odd, but, in the past week or 2 I am beginning to think that maybe the front of my frame is tweaked.
I don't know why this hasn't shown up for me in the past 5-7 years but well, it became obvious recently after a trip to a local shop for front coil-spring cut, and alignment and 2 new tires.
It looked good when I picked it up, then it poured rain and I noticed a short rough-riding trip home. Rougher than expected - I've been in lowered cars before and this was stiffer to me.
Later, I found the drivers side control arm sitting on the 50yr old bumper-stop and the passenger side control arm bumper-stop was more deteriorated and broke in half.
It was obvious at that point that the passenger side fender-lip was sitting about 2" lower than the drivers side. dammitdammitdammit.
Since I've never noticed this before when it had original springs, and also not noticed for the past 2 years on the Global West springs that were 4-5 inches too high, I was expecting that the local shop may have cut the springs differently.
I took things apart, found the cut springs were identical but thought it was odd that the LCA adjustment on both had the bolt at the upper-right corner. (since this pulls the LCA in/out, technically, it alters the spring angle and to some extent I wouuld think it's mechanical length and effectiveness) So, the passenger LCA was pushed out as far as it could go and the Drivers LCA was pulled in as far as it could go. I decided to put them both to the middle to even things out and adjust the top of the UCA to get desired Camber.
I was hoping that might have been all it was but I still have a bit of a lean on the passenger side, but I think the LCA adjustment did help a little.
I started looking closer and I'm starting to believe my frame is tweaked and I may have to take it to a collision shop to be checked.
What do you guys think?
