I noticed that some of you guys have a 300TEs, and or have knowledge of this car. I have lowered the suspension on mine and I feel the rear end is still to high. Is it because of the Self leveling suspension in the rear. Also, even after the new springs the passenger side still seems higher than the drivers side(the ride height). Parts included H&R springs and 8mm pads on all four corners. Any advice on the rear end would really be appreciated.

The term self-leveling means just that. If the rear of the car Is lower due to weight OR in your case shorter springs the system sends pressure to raise system. You will have to adjust rod on leveling valve so that car will come down (longer). May take a couple of times to get desired results. The rod hooks to rear anti-sway bar.
