Suspension problems

I recently lowered my e46 M3 wit H&R sport springs and realized that my rear left sits a little lower than the right rear. What will be the problem?

The springs could still be settling. I would give a visual inspection of suspension components on the left side, and if nothing is evident, wait.

Make sure everything was installed properly. Is it possible a spring pad was left out?

I had this problem with my LR spring. The LR sat higher than the RR. Make sure that the strut is all the way into the strut knuckle. There is a notch that should be placed all the way down to the knuckle.

Hmm. There aren't struts or knuckles in the rear...
