    There are lots of threads on Hybridz that discuss this issue. Your problem could be the wrong springs on each end of the car, control arms not properly torqued with the car on the ground, and about three other things.

    I already reached out to Motorsports and there was not any feedback at all. Thanks for your help.

    Hi John,
    I am hoping that you can help me with a problem that my mechanic and I can not figure out regarding new Eibach springs that we purchased through Motorsport. My Datsun is a 72 240z, with the original engine and transmission. We have just completed installing new bushings on the front and rear of the car. We have purchased KYB struts, and the Eibach performance springs.
    When the springs are installed, the front sits higher then the rear. I have read through most of the threads with some saying that they have had no issues installing these springs, while others have had the same problem as we have. All of the struts housings are believed to be original to the car. We are the second owner of the car as the car was a one family owner since it was purchased back in 1972. Aside from the performance bushings, we did install the camber adjuster on the rear of the car. Motorsports noted that in all Z's after 74, the ride height would drop around 3/4" in the rear.
