    help!!! plz

    right to cut a long story short my mate crashed my car into a curb, i have changed everything on the front drivers side appart from the strut now the strut looks fine thats why i left it, now when turning the wheel full lock to the right the suspension drops down then when i straighten the wheel the suspension lifts any ideas ? i never changed the drop link on the other side would that cause it or possibly the strut bent abit?

    Sounds like a bent strut to me. The drop link would just twist the ARB, not affect the height of the car. Check for a broken spring too, but this is less likely.

    well i do have another strut but the spring looks longer both struts have the same part number so i know they are identical how would i know if the one on the car is a s3 spring ?
