180gr records are non-standard.
Most decks can be made to play them but, ideally, if you adjust the suspension to suit 180gr records,
you should put it back again to play standard records, because the subchassis suspension carries both
the record, the platter, electronics and carriage of which the latter shifts the center of gravity of
the whole subchassis when moving.

In your case I would tighten the suspension just slightly on the left and rear leaf spring.
