Suspension setup question

Hey guys,

Well I bought a 330ci, took it to a shop for body work, suspension setup and all that.

Anyway last week they told me suspension is all setup but my frame is off by one inch in the rear. and my wheel is rubbing.

So I tell them to go ahead and put it on the frame machine. And fix the problem. I'm not too sure they actually put it on a frame machine but rather adjusted some stuff to make it seem okay.

So the passenger side was the side that was rubbing initially and is still rubbing now.

The setup was what kind of raised a red flag. Now I bought some Raceland coilovers but they should not be doing this. Lol.

the guy at the shop put the passenger rear coil all the way to the highest possible adjustment, while the driver side was near the lower half of the coil.

I asked him why that side would be rubbing (before I checked for myself) and he said it was a low quality spring.

I went underneath and checked for myself and saw that the rears were wayyy off. Any ideas why he did this?
