It could be either the front or rear springs causing the problem. As to the sway bar, it can also pre-load a suspension. Just disconnect it on one side and go for a drive and re-measure to find out.


Great idea on the lowering blocks - never thought of that.

I'll check the sway bar tomorrow.

Thanks again.
