Example

Rear left spring preload C is increased. This causes the wheel load :

- to be increased at LH rear C and RH front B

- to be reduced at RH rear D and LH front A

Increasing the built-in spring preload on one side (raising the vehicle) causes the wheel load to be increased.

Reducing the built-in spring preload on one side (lowering the vehicle) causes the wheel load to be reduced.

A change of the wheel load affects the diagonally opposite side of the other axle side. I.e. if the wheel load is reduced or increased on one side, the diagonally opposite wheel is affected in the same way.

The left-to-right wheel load difference at the front and rear axles should be as small as possible (below 20 kgs, if possible).
