Can't get it level to save my life.

On Megan ezs. Have about 3k on them. Maxed out the black shock body in the blue housing on all 4 corners. The rear was off about half an inch on one side. It was higher. I noticed the nut on the bottom of the assembly was at different positions on the bottom mount shaft. I measured from the mount to the nut on the lowest side and adjusted the higher side to match. I still can't get them the same. I don't want to adjust preload but I'm left with no choice. Think the preload is different and that's why it's uneaven? Please help lol. I'm about to just adjust the nut lower each day until they are the same.

All four corners of the car weight differently, therefore you will notice the car sitting unequal. A car does not sit equal from factory and the reason why you haven't noticed a car sitting unequally on stock height is because its harder to notice the differences when the car is higher off the ground. You will have to measure from the bottom of the rim to your fenders, find a level spot and measure, and adjust it accordingly.

For example, my passenger side treads are sitting lower than my driver side, thus evening out the car, I hope this helps man.

Thanks fellas. From being around the track I'm aware of these quirks but can usually handle it. This car is just being stubborn. I'll try again and update
