    I noticed that the near side / passenger side sits slightly higher than the drivers side. I thought that it may be due to a cracked spring but I have had the car at my garage on the ramp and everything appears fine. The difference is maybe 15mm or so so I was wondering if it was just down to the weight of the engine and fuel tank? Or is there some other thing I am missing? The car drives fine and has full history with 103k. It's also on the standard suspension. Thanks.

    Any fluid leaking from the shocks? Sounds rude but was a previous owner a bit AHEM... fat?

    Shocks all seem fine but I thought that the ride height was just down to the springs?
