You could check your across axle weight to see if there is a difference, normally they do all four, since putting the coilovers on as said at the weekend the front end push seems to be more prevalent than before, we all know they are light on the front, but after fitting shorter arms I had seemed to have dialled most of it out. But now it's returned, however thinking about it logically I have effectively lifted the front of the buggy which as the front arms top & bottom are not the same length I will have adjusted my camber.

I'll have to dig out Justin's excellent explanation of the front geometry & go get it checked/altered again problem is it'll be another £60

yeah I re did all my geometry and at present it all works well...

The only issue is pass side the wheel looks like it is going up and down more :D

So with the scales would you weigh both the fronts and get them the same?

It might be worth weighing just to see what they weigh, traditionally the nearside wheel had to run on the worst part of the road, although I'm not sure that is the case these days. First thing might be to simply check that each shock is wound up the same amount & that they are the same number of clicks.
