    sitting squint

    Hi all my v40 was fitted with Eibach springs last year and I have noticed that it is sitting lower on the drivers rear.
    I have had a look and everything seems ok, Any ideas or is this just a warranty job for Eibach?
    I am giong to put the original springs back on the rear ( 80's tyles jacked up rear suspension! Remember mk2 escorts?) to see if it sits level on those.

    that's strange.... I'd whip the back's off and see if they're the same size, if so, (no offence intended, obviously) I'd wonder what I missed off......

    a rubber the wrong way round can do funny things....

    I fitted one of mine upside down,lol, that certainly didn't help with the ride height.

    May be the shock has gone, this can cause it to sit slightly lower.
