Why Different Length Springs At The Front?

Recommended Posts

i'm just putting the suspension together and a couple of items are not clear

in the manual, (FA3), Book 1 , it states there's 13 mm difference b.ween left and right hand coils, with RH being longer.

does anyone know if that's for the engine being at a slant and thus a marginal weight difference - it leans to the right or is it to compensate for the driver's weight

in which case, i'd have to swap sides?

Longer on RH due to car having one person on board for more time!


It would not be due to road profile/shape here in Australia, as they did not bother with this for passenger cars.

Japanese trucks many had to get the front axle cambered/bent in order to steer better on our crowned shaped roads.
