    I just installed my front suspension, sportline springs and tokico illuminas...The passenger side sits about half an inch higher than the driver side. Anyone have any idea what may be causing this?

    I dont think so- they are both on the same setting (5)...maybe after driving around a while the springs will settle.

    My friend has some Sportlines (yours should be red) and after he got em put on, everything was fine...Well, his wheels rub the wheel well, but he has some Tenzo R 17's. No problems on his tho.

    i have had my eibach sportlines for about 4 or 5 months now and havent had any problems. i kinda doubt that the eibachs are causing the problem because they are very well made springs, unless of course they are defective...in which case, eibach would replace them.

    but still it would of helped if we knew the manufacturer of the spring. if it's not seated correctly like htrcivic96sir said, I'd check to make sure you put the corect spring on the front and rear.

    Sportlines are only made by Eibach, they make two springs, Sportlines and Pro-Kits.

    true that CRX-YEN.....but if you mixed um up that would definitly be your prob.......its kinda hard to mix them up though becuz the fronts are flat on top and the backs have smaller coils at the bottom

    No- they make a LOT more than just Pro-Kits and Sportlines.
