Passenger side lower than driver side + more.

Hey guys, I've known this for a while but its really bugging me. First off, my tire clearance (tire to fender) is about an inch less on my passenger side than my driver side. Now I know that the engine rotates that way and pushes the passenger side down under acceleration. But, my springs (RC 2.5") are only 1.5 months old and shouldn't be giving that much yet. The axles are centered (JKS track bars) and I have JKS sway bar links on both ends. They are properly adjusted and the pairs are the exact same length. CA's are tight and have no play. Springs are installed correctly and are sitting just right. I have checked everything and there is no reason that the springs should be sagging on one side of the jeep.

ALSO, when acceleration, my jeep SLIGHTLY (but noticeably) pushes to the left and when I let off of the gas, it either recenters or goes a bit to the right. Maybe these problems are related. But if you have any input, thanks a lot!

On some lifts there is a different left and right spring to compensate for the lift, I don't know about the RC but you could try switch the springs left to right.

The left and right pushing on Accel / decel is rear steer. Your rear trackbar is loose or the bushings are shot.

Thanks, I'll check the rear track bar, but before installing it, I inspected the bushings and everything looked great. It's in there very tight as well. Anyhow, I'm aware of OME using different height springs but RC doesn't do that.
