It sits about an inch and a half lower on the driver's side than on the passengers side... Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Oh, and this DOES relate to guns; I smashed my hand and now can't shoot until it heals.
Mismatched coil springs?

Sorry to hear about your hand. Hope you feel better soon.

That would be my dad. I only drive it half as often as he does.

Could this be the case?

If not, just put a wedge in the low side spring. (the rubber wedge not the screw in aluminum ones)
I'm quite certain that I put them in right because I got one of them in just a little off and took it apart and did it again. I may just have to put something like a wedge in there, I was hoping I wouldn't have to take it all apart again. Oh, well everything is easier the second... or third time around right?

I thought was a possibility because the old ones looked different but they're brand new and it's still doing the same thing.

My guess is the frame is bent then, but I'm no that smart.

My Lightning lost Friday night and are out of the NHl Stanley Cup playoffs. It has been painful till now, but I shot today, and that helped. Wait till next year!

Took me till today to find some Boston Bruins posters to use as targets!

Stupid rain. I'm so sick of the dang rain. For the love of everything that is good, why doesn't it stop f-ing raining?

Did I mention it's raining again.

Well my brother is coming home from up North

It might be because he ran into a scrub bull on a quadbike and broke his leg in 6 places and needs surgery




But still.....

Good thanks Jesse, I've got almost a month and a half off from school now so I should be able to get some trigger time in! He says he's going to be ok, he had to fly into Brisbane in the air ambulance but and get a screw and plate put into his leg to hold his fibula away from his tibia. A month or so is all he reckons he'll need off.
