Actually, my 88 Ur-q sits approx 10mm low at the drivers side rear too. I
don't think its the springs because I'm almost certain that I swapped them
over when I had the suspension off (maybe I mixed them up and managed to put
them back on the sides that I took them from).  I've been thinking of
fitting new top mounts to see if they have any effect.
