jeepers, talk about a thread resurrection Laughing

As pointed above, this is normal for a RHD vehicle.

If it really bothers you, then get some spring isolators and stack them on the left until you are happy with the level. --

Gwyn Lewis does spring spacers so you can raise the lower side. Or you could buy new springs.

If you have ever replaced a set of springs you will have noticed that they are colour coded and come with instructions as to position on the vehicle where they are supposed to be installed.

The reason for this is so the vehicle sits level with just the driver. The passenger springs are a different tension so that when a front seat passenger is carried the vehicle remains level.

Yes, I found those spring spacers, but they are only 6mm size... my difference is 30mm, so.
I also changed the original rear springs for ARB springs, I compared them to see if there is any color code or height variance... nothing both were exactly the same at least for the rear side.

Anyway, I will continue investigating why is this height variance kind of "common" in Defenders and let you know my results... there should be something in the chassis, or a bushing that is damaged at the left side I guess... still investigating.

Thanks fellas!
