My Ride: 325 CI
Is my 325ci riding low?


I dunno if it common but I scrape the bottom on some medium sized bumps. I have a doubt on the rear suspension. Is it riding low.

Search the forum for "ride height". I've seen multiple posts with excerpts from Bentley and/or TIS, which show the proper factory technique for measuring ride height and the specs for the various tire/suspension combinations.

Ok, so today i compared my ride height with that of a 330 ci convertible e46 and i can clearly see that my rear suspension height is lower. So what could be at fault here? Rear springs? Also i have noticed that when i go over bumps, the suspension is all over the place. Like it feels like the cars sways side to side a bit.
