for one side to be slightly higher than the other?

One side seems higher than the other, this may just be cuz it's not on level ground, anyone else with this problem?

I had this problem with the stock shocks/springs, after driving
roughly 35,000 miles with mostly just me/no passenger. I've
seen this in numerous cars, though, ("sagging" on the driver's
side). Is yours on the passenger's side? Since I put the new
setup in about a year ago, it's "straight 'n level", at least to
the eye.

my side, the driver's side, is the one that is more low or sagging as you put it.

is it supposed to be like that?

No...I think it's just age and normal wear. I gotta' find a
woman that weighs as much as me, I guess :D, to "balance
things out". How old's your setup? If it's a "daily driver", and
you drive alone, years of this will cause that "sag", IMO.
Most "normal" people won't/wouldn't notice this, though;
only us "gearheads" :D. It IS, after-all, ALMOST imperceptible.

It's only about 5-6 months old. The difference is probably less than half an inch but sometimes I park on uneven ground and I notice it more, and when it's level ground it seems okay.

Post some pics, man! A setup that "young" shouldn't have
a "driver's-side sag", IMO.

my prelude sits a hair lower on the drivers side....its cause more weight is on the drivers side of the car...the engine is off set a little on the drivers side...thats just the way it is. you didn't notice that the car leaned with the stock springs...cause you didn't look that hard...cause with the stock springs it leans a little too.

Yeah actually I did notice that it did lean with the stock ones, I just thought there was something wrong with the build quality.

I guess it is normal, it just bothers me cuz sometimes it looks really low, when the ground is uneven, and other times it looks normal.
