    Default Is my rear end looking a bit low....

    lol, or is it just me? Noticed this before but thought nothing of it, then just looking at some photo's I've recently taken of my veccy, my rear suspension looks very low at the back of the car. As far as I know it's all standard, nothing heavy in the boot but just noticed it looks very low compared to the front. Is this normal and nothing to worry about or is there a suspected problem? Everything seems okay, been fine to drive...

    Might be a bad pic, but there usually 1cm or so higher at the front...

    Measure both from centre cap to the peak of the arch.

    lol yeah, the last one was taken on the downs, the other 2 in norfolk where I've just been away to. Maybe it is the pic, maybe the ground wasn't flat and maybe I'm worrying a bit too much, but it sticks out like a sore thumb in the first 2 pictures.

    It does look lower than normal.

    Have you checked for broken springs on the rear?

    I had a look a while ago, but can't really see them. Whats the best way to look at them, should I jack it up and take a peek underneath?

    Looks low in the first 2, but the third looks ok, if you don't have a broken spring id put it down to the uneven surface. I do love that colour btw, not a common one like my Star Silver

    Jack it up and have a look,.

    Sometimes they break right at the ends (About 3" long) and not as obvious as a big bit breaking,

    Thanks, I do like the silver, had a silver pre-face myself, but fancied a different colour when I changed to the facelift
