The wheel clearance on the right side of the car is a lot less than the wheel clearance on the left. It's actually causing my right tire to rub on the fender well.

Any possible causes? If have stock shocks and eibach springs.

The clearance issue was found on some cars that were running swift springs

Maybe the same phenomena occurred on your eibach springs

I think its better to wait for feedback from people who have eibach springs installed for as long as you have with similar driving style

Hmmm. You think the spring stiffness on one side is changing?

Can you confirm that the left and right were correct after installation of the Eibachs? If it was even, I would guess a weak/faulty spring on one side.

I'm going to check my alignment to see if the camber is off on one side.

Car doesn't feel bouncy and the suspension control switch still makes a difference in ride quality so shocks still working.

I too have the same problem and talked to numerous shops but no one has given me a clear answer to date.
A good news is it has not affected the car's handling characteristics and high speed stability. Also the alignment is dead accurate as it can be.
BTW, I have Swift springs and Stillen adj. sway bar set up.

If you look at your wheels from the front or back, does your right wheel look like it has more camber?

I had this same height issue with stock springs, and then it was exaggerated when I lowered on swifts...so weird.

Nothing in trunk and the car is uneven without a driver. I've been told that early eibach springs tend to sag or become uneven. I'm changing the springs to see if that solves it.

Hm, I hope this isn't a widespread issue... Even some 2012s being affected I see.

Gregs car was a bit uneven in pictures, but once he got here, we spent some time looking at it. Put a driver in the seat, and it wasn't that different side to side. I forget the exact number, but it wasn't much of a concern. The springs might settle a little unevenly, but there was nothing obvious that we could see. We thought it might be a spring rubber or the spring moving in the seat a little.

It does look like right wheel has slightly more camber but then again, three shops including Nissan dealer confirmed the alignment is correct.
As Sean mentioned above the car evens out when I get into a driver seat. This uneven thing bothers me a bit but as long as the car is stable at high speed I'm all good
