Yes, I did a search.

I recently picked up a 1993.5 Anthracite Auto and have begun cleaning everything up and going over the car with a fine toothed comb etc. I noticed that the passenger side wheel gap was more then the driver's side and took a few measurements. Seems that the driver's side fender is approx 1 inch lower to the ground then the passenger's side fender. Obviously this isn't right. All looks good as far as the suspension-no bent parts etc, so I took the liberty to measure the heighths of the springs. This explains it-the driver's side measured at 8.5 inches compressed (as the car sits) and the passenger measured at 9 inches compressed.

Is it common for the stock springs to sag after a lot of miles? The car has 98k miles on it and is 10 years old. I also planned on replacing these items anyways, very soon, but wanted to get other's opinions. Is there anything else I need to check?

Thanks in advance,

Steve K.

Yes i have seen it on some Supras....and on mine it sagged on drivers side as well .....i have 100K so i replaced with all new stock springs and struts and all was good again . Car rode totally different. And the stock springs and stuts are imho very cheap. So you are fine....just have worn out springs and struts.

Thanks for the help Tony. That is what I figured. It also explains why the car rides like total [email protected] too.
