Yes if it sat good when fitted and is now sagging then a sagging spring is likely. Whack a spring packer in that one mate, that is actually what they were originally designed for not as a lift alternative.

Spring packers are for trimming up the lift to an even position for all corners.

Good luck

I assume you got the correct springs in the correct sides? As the drivers side should be maybe 10 or 20 mm higher/longer to account for their being more weight on the drivers side (spare tyre, battery and driver in a standard car).

If the kit is that new, I would be going back for some answers if it is what they spec'd up for you and you stuck to the weights that you asked them to spec it up for.

I've seen plenty that sit down on the drivers side, anything from MQ to GU. It seems fairly normal for them to do that.

If your suspension is still under warranty take is back, or ring sanke racing about it.
