    Hi guys I know it may not be to your tastes around here but looking for advice anyway, my b7 avant is on air ride and when sat low the rear offside wheel is a lot closer to the arch than the nearside, the camber is equal both sides so this is not the problem. Is the subframe adjustable from side to side?
    I'd really like to sort this out :confused:

    Cheers

    I have heard that on mk 4 golf/boras that the rear subframe is slightly offset from the factory to counteract the weight of the driver or the fuel tank or something. So it could also be a similar situation on the B7 I suppose.

    Do you have any pics of your car up here? a B7 Avant on air sounds really nice.

    Ah thanks dude, I had heard that before, perhaps you're right and this is the same :( Looks like I will have to have one adapter modified!

    I'll chuck a few pics up in a reader's ride thread if there's a section :)
