    Default HZ Front Suspension, need help.

    G'day,

    I have rebuilt the front end in my HZ.

    New rubber bushes, new ball joints, tidied up HZ upper and lower control arms and HZ stub axles.

    Used the old shocks and springs as there are Peddars and are still ok.

    The problem is that now the drivers side sits about 10mm lower than before, the passenger side is the same as before.

    Anyone have any ideas on what I have done wrong, I have done a couple before and haven't had this problem.

    Cheers for any advice.

    HI
    Springs depending on what ends they have [round or flattened ] will make the spring sit out of the seat . Eg the top is not located but the bottom of spring has a locator in the wishbone . Have u installed spring upside down ??
    Do u have spring rubbers fitted . [top of spring ] left out ??

    Some springs are drivers side {taller maybe ? Sometimes marked PS DS ] and passenger side .
    After u have repaired suspension its best to go driving 100-200mts then asses height then wheel align

    Sat the springs into the seats, will probably have to take them out to check PS DS.

    Seemed to be ok when I first put it together six months ago, just noticed it on the weekend, don't drive it much.

    Found the problem,

    The springs were not seated properly to keep the front end level, sick of dodgy pricks.

    New set of springs and all's good
