HX suspension sag

HX premier. One inch low Kings all round. From rear looks sagged on left side at rear approx 10 mm and front is 12mm. Rear springs are within 1mm when removed as is fronts. Have put a 6mm spacer in front and still same . Have also swapped the left front to other side and still same sag on left. Anyone got any thoughts. Annoys the hell as is very noticeable from behind. Have thought about putting a 50 kg bag of sand in the boot on RHS to compensate.
Cheers
Dave

Hey mate I am an expert..not, but is it possible or make sense that perhaps a bent control arm may sit the spring/s in the front causing a sag effect??

Under the springs Maybe worn ,shocks could be worn also they twist the chassis other way so it's not that ,l bet the rubbers are worn or rear springs.

It could just worn shocks, I had uneven heights both my HD & my previous car a UC & both had what seem to be factory shocks.

As per what Daz said, did you check the rubbers that the springs sit on? If they are worn thru they will affect your ride height. I've attached a pic of mine if that helps.

pedders for one sell neoprene spacers of various thicknesses, easy to add to the rear, harder but still a simple job to space it under the front too.

however - i would check the springs in the higher side of the front are properly seated in the control arms, ie the end of the spring is where its supposed to be.

as a last resort are you sure the car is not bent or twisted ? (seen it before)
