Hey guys,
I have a vz ss ute with sssl king springs in it and one side sits higher than the other(passenger side higher by 10mm). I swapped rear springs around to make sure both springs were exactly same height (which they were), now i have been told it could be the rubber bushes at the top of the strut tower may have collapsed. Could this be the problem?
Any help much appreciated.

That's a common problem. I'm about to do mine actually. Open the bonnet and have a look at the top of the strut. If there is a gap between the rubber and guard then they are stuffed.

Yep, there sure is. Cheers juzo, now i no thats the problem. Also is there a better compound bush because the ones that are in it seem pretty poor.
