    suspension problems?

    Hi, I changed my springs yesterday on my 04 sports avant. All went well but I noticed when measuring that the drivers side sits about 15/20mm lower than the other side at the rear. It was like it before i changed the springs, and afterwards too. Anyone got any thoughts?

    checked the tyre pressures are the same and both tyres are the same type and profile?

    Could also be a bush thats lost its toughness and is letting the car lean down slightly but to be accurate you need to make and record a series of measurements on a flat surface, with the ground as the datum point and take measurements from there to some points on each side, ie wishbone bottom mount, swaybar mount, shock bottom, shock top, tyre top and this should highlight where the difference is coming from.
