Its been a few years since I did a complete new setup on a car. With the Penske shocks, I started from the recommend lengths during assembly.
I installed on the car, put it on the scales, with driver weight and was at 49.9%. I should have stopped there done camber, caster, toe and called it a day. But I decided to lower the rear, in response to some feedback i had received. This of course shifted the cross to 49%. So I used the up on RF and LR, and down on LF and RR to get the cross back to 50%.
However, once camber, toe, and caster was set. I took ride heights, from shock to bump stop. LF 1.4", RF, 1.75", LR 1.3:, and RR 1.67". On the bilsteins, my left and right differences were usually .1 - .2", front with usually more difference than the rear. But knowing there was weight in the car i wasn't too worried at the time.
Anyway, 8 hours start to finish(why i hate setup), unloaded weights, dropped the car, and the put all the scales and stuff away. However, now I looked at the car is listing, low on the driver side, with no driver weights. Ugg....
Thinking back, I did recall right after i put the shocks in, no driver weight, no adjustments the left side was between 1/16 and 1/8 lower. Should I have adjusted right there to get level right heights?
My pinch welds are not very nice and so estimating is big part of using that measurement, so haven't done so as part of my normal process with Bilsteins. However, the pinch welds no driver, on the ground in garage with 2 degree slope read the following. LF 4 7/16, LR 4 5/8, RF 5 1/16, RR 4 7/8. What? Reverse rake on one side, and mild rake on the other. Car bent? or just F'd up pinch welds.
So i am assuming I should fix this. What is the best and most efficient process to fix?
