I installed my apex 60mm drop springs and the one side of the car sits a little higher. Any suggestions? Maybe the spring just has to settle?

If they are new, Give it sometime to settle.

Is it leaning more to one side in the rear or the front?

If it is the rear, just a shot in the dark here, but it could just be that your spring pads are of different thickness.

^ hmm that's weird, it almost sounds like the strut insert is defective or shot, are the inserts used? what kind are they?
