Default Bent Frame????

Put new leaf springs, shock absorbers and wheels/tires on 2006 Precedent, and noticed the spacing from top of left front wheel to the body is .5 inches and the right front wheel to body is 1.1 inches.

Anybody have any ideas what would cause this other than a bent frame? I have been looking over the suspension parts, but nothing obvious is standing out as a culprit.

Thoughts????

Try adjusting the main bottom spring from side to side.

I was afraid this would just tweak the camber.

Did you change the front leaf spring as well? or just the rear?

Try spinning the front spring around the other way and see if that does anything. If it does, you'll know it's a bad spring.

Your the man................turned the spring around and found the spring was rebent unevenly. Frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, I really appreciate the suggestion. At least now I know how to address the problem and know the cause.

Thanks again.
