2" Springtech spring install... Some problems!
So I installed some Belltech 2" lift shackles along with new ProComp 3000 shocks in the rear. Install went great and it rides great in the rear.
Now for the front I went with some 2" lift Springtech springs and ProComp 3000s also. The install went fine but the passenger side sits AT LEAST 1" higher than the driver side and has way more neg camber. I double checked that the spring was seated correctly and even took it completely apart and then reinstalled it paying close attention to the spring placement and got the same results. Also, the spring doesn't seem to be sitting all the way flat in the lower spring cup in the LCA. It sits tight against the inside of the coil but the outside of the coil doesn't sit in the bottom of the spring cup. It's like the coil isn't flexing enough to let it sit flat all around. Is this because they need to soften up and break in or is something wrong with them?
Now when I bought the truck a few weeks ago the PO had 3 cheap Autozone spring spacer blocks in the driver side and only 1 in the passenger side of the stock springs. I didn't notice this until a few days after but I took them all out and the driver side sagged about 1" lower than the pass. side w/o the spacers in. This should have triggered an alarm in my head but I just figured the driver side spring was sagging due to age or something which is why I bought the new springtech springs, to replace the springs with those cheap block spacers.
Unfortunately I have the same problem with the new springs. So I'm wondering if the PO just beat the truck and maybe the frame is bent? Or maybe Springtech sent me 2 different size springs? Before I installed them I stood them up to the stock springs and they were about an inch shorter but much thicker.
I'm losing my mind over why this is happening and am worried that it is unrepairable damage to the frame or something!!!! Has anybody had something similar to this happen to them on a new suspension install?
I'm looking for any advice at all or any insight as to why this is happening!!!
Thanks in advance!
