    Elka shocks

    So I was doing adjustments on my elka shocks on my 17 sport after taking my lift off and noticed that the machine sits almost two inches higher on the driver side in the front than the passenger side. It measures 11 1/4” on the passenger side of ground clearance and 13” on the driver side. All the adjustments are the same. Seem like the passenger side spring is almost failing. Any help?

    Are the pre load rings set to the same distance?

    take a measurement from the bottom of the pre load ring to the bottom spring perch and compare the two sides.

    i see you have the "updated" Elka springs that they just shortened.
