comments? with our sls system leaking like a sieve i would like to

I can only guess at a couple of possibilities. The Jag spring kit I
purchased came with a selection of plastic spring packers. You’re
supposed to fit the requisite number / thicknesses according to the
colour code painted on the springs. If I had fitted all the packers
supplied, my car would have been too high at the back. As it is, the
back is about three-eighths of an inch higher than the front, unladen,
measured from the floor to the underside of the wheel arch at the
centreline of the wheel. Looks just right.
Alternative suggestion. Did the car originally have the “Sports-Pack”
SLS fitted which has lowered suspension? If so, and the Non-SLS
springs [and dampers(?)] fitted were of the “Non-Sports-Pack” variety,
I guess the back end would be too high in relation to the
“Sports-Pack” front end.
DO NOT go back to fitting the shorter SLS springs!
