I have the shocks and springs installed but the front driver side is higher than the front passenger. The rears are fine.
Is there something I should be looking at or has anyone else had a similar problem?
I had these installed by a friend of mine who's a VW tech and was there helping with the whole install.

Re: Bilstein sport and VW Eibach springs - installed but small problem (Grinder911)

Did he remember to re-install both 10mm spacers?

Re: Bilstein sport and VW Eibach springs - installed but small problem (fubar)

Yes both spacers were put in. Basically everything that came out went back in except for the bumpstops because of the larger pistons on the Bilsteins. I also checked to see if the spring wasn't seated properly but it is. The Eibachs on stock shocks gave me a 2 finger gap. Now with the Bilsteins, I've got a 3 finger gap on the right and a 2 finger gap on the left. They feel like nothing is wrong when driving.
