    Car not sitting level

    Hi all, not posted a thread for a while but got a niggling issue and wondered if anyone has had this problem before

    I've got AP coilovers with the adjusters removed at the back and for a while now the car seems to be quite a bit lower on the drivers side rear, about 10-15mm. I've had a quick look underneath but everything seems to look fine, tie arms are solid, spring isn't broking, damper isn't leaking.

    I've also changed the rear springs to jamex thinking that it could be faulty AP springs but that made no difference so i've put the AP springs back on.

    Worns bushes? If so which bushes, i'm lost

    front trailing arm bushes perhaps.
    When was alignment last done? It could be out slightly, if one side doesnt mirror the other it might appear different, like if the tie bars are different lengths.
    bush number 4 (well worth changing)

    Alignment was done about 18mths ago, he struggled to get it perfect though, maybe because of worn bushes

    Think i'll have to get the front trailing arm bushes checked out, it seems like it's getting lower over time, wish the passenger side was the same tbh because i like how low the driverside is :D

    rebush the whole rear end, its worth doing anyway and might solve it.
