car sagging to one side. need help!!
 
Wats up guys. So i knew my car was sahging to the back right. I replaced the springs and shocks in the back and its still sagging. Did anyone ever have this problem? Anyone have a idea?

I have heard that it is supposed to level out once the driver gets in the car. Guess I don't weigh 250lbs enough for it to do that though because mine is like this too with an H&R cup kit.

It irritating because it even pulls to the right to. Im thinking about raising up that spring a tad to even it out. But anyone have any ideas

I dont think its gonna level. Im only 165lbs

Have you tried getting an alignment?

maybe its been lowered uneven on that side

I dont think a alignment would help. The car is sagging to the side like the spring was cut or it was a weak spring

Post a front and back pic with it on level ground.

Gas tank. :idea:

Gas tank should be centered to even out weight

If you check the spring height..double check to make sure your frame is still intact on both sides....it could possibly be that, just giving you a idea because mine did the same and it was when my frame starting to rip out

This is a good point. This is a known problem on pre 2001/09 e46's. subframe tear-out is plausible. Search subframe failure to find how to look for subframe tear-out.

Alright will do
