Question Jimny '03 Suspension problem

Hi there,

I recently bought a '03 Jimny. I'm very satisfied with this car, but a couple of days ago I noticed something even the guys at the garage can't explain.

In an unloaded state the body of the car hangs down on the rear right, just about an inch. And when I drive some bends it seems that it leans more to the right than it does to the left.

I went to the garage, they replaced the coil spring on the rear right, but nothing changed. They can't explain and have absolutely no idea what to do.
The only thing they did explain is, that the Jimny does have different coil springs in the back. 8 coils on the left side and 7 on the right?

I don't know much about cars but since this is a right steered car, shouldn't the 8 coiled spring on the right side instead of the 7 coiled one - assuming that it's true that there are different springs built in.

Any suggestions?



P.S.: sorry for my bad english, but it isn't my native language

For the same overall spring height 7 coils would be stiffer than 8, so that sounds right. The Jimny definately has different spring rates, someone (most likely Martin) on
www.jimny.se - a site made for Suzuki Jimny and it's owners only will know the details.
