Hey guys. I wanted to know if coilovers collars are supposed to be uneven in the front or at all. I'm on some BC coilovers, but the collars don't seem to be even in terms of threads, one side is higher than the other, but the car seems to be even in terms of fender gap on level ground. Any thoughts? Especially people with coilovers. I'll add pictures soon. Any help with be appreciated. (The ride seems to be good, it's harsh on potholes which is normal.)

No, they are not supposed to be even. (is a car symmetrical..?)

And if you're serious about coilovers you should have your car corner balanced to properly preload the springs, at which point you'll realize how very uneven they have to be to keep the car "even".

Thanks. Ya I heard about corner balancing, but I thought that was mostly for people who track. But, thanks for your help
