Did you try different sets of springs? Do you have any chassis weights on it, and if so, where are they?

I meant do you have any extras of the same rate of springs that you could try?

If your scales are accurate, the simpler way is to put weight nearer the FR, on top of servo.
Remember - don't have the springs compressed when the wheels are of the ground.
Your car, without weight will have always 17 on the left side and minus 1.5 on the right side.
Put all springs equal with, say 1/16 free play and see. I'm assuming that shocks, towers, are equal side to side.

ED - You have probubly done this, but go back and look at the length of your shock shafts. You want them all the same lenght. Im just trying to work at the basics. Are using threaded shock bodies or the preload clips?
