Ute to one side

Righto,

So my hj ute has a bit of a lean to the drivers side. All tyre sizes and pressures are the same, new front shocks...any other ideas?

Cheers

Hi,all....
I`ve noticed a slight lean to drivers side on some cars over the years,too.
Always thought it to do with design of car to `counter` the camber of the road,so car sits level.
I`m probably wrong,but that`s what I thought...

I've heard it occurs in Cars that routinely have the Driver as the only occupant.

mine drifts into the gutter at times, been told it was tracking caused by 18" wheels. mine also could use a blanace/alignment.

I do know for a fact that most car makers will either have stiffer springs on the driver's side or the springs set longer uncompressed to compensate for the driver's weight, making the car sit level(fords for many years always had the driver's side set 1/2 inch longer/higher). If nothing is broken or bent, and a good mechanic who knows what he is on about says so, it may be just sagged. all car springs sag after a couple of decades. In extreme cases, I have seen worn out control arm bushes cause uneven suspension heights, often caused by oil leaking onto the rubber bushes.

If your project doesn't work, look for the part you didn't think was important.

mckackie

the right spring will be a bit higher when compared to the left if you sit them side by side. When you get springs reset they all ways tell you which 1 is the right spring.

Whats wrong with Melbourne drug addicts sleeping all over the footpath trying to scab money?

Left spring for right spring, then get a wheel alignment.
If your gunna do the rear springs too you get the chance to replace most of your bushings, (joy).

You need to find a fat girl to ride in the passenger side. That will level it out in no time!!!

Grin, I had a look over the car. Springs and all seem to be good.
My partner came out of the house actually and asked me what i was doing. (she's 5'10), slim and small build.) "Trying to figure out why this is sitting crooked". She said "why dont you just put something on the other side to compensate it". "Like What?"", She said "How bout this kid (points to her stomach) and me.

Didn't know she was pregnant.
