    Default Wonky Eibachs??

    I've recently had Eibach fitted to my 1.9 CDTI which looked superb and ran well, few days ago though I had a garage take the wheels off and swap tyres and sort wheel issues and now the car is sat really weird!!

    NSR looks fine, OSR is much higher though
    OSF looks fine, NSF looks too high but not as distorted as the rears.

    The garage that did the tyres just jacked the car from the ground - I wondered if they may have knocked the springs out of place (over extended?)

    Anyone had similar problems?? Seems to run pretty smooth, only noticed when I came back to the car today and looked like the OSR was back to it's pre-Eibach height!!

    If you jack the car up you are stretching the springs to their max length.

    When you have lowered it back down all cars take a few days or a wk to settle back to their correct ride height.

    Give it a few days to settle. Should befine then.

    I sometimes look at my Sig and it seems to be sat wonky... I have the Eibachs and Bilsteins. I just put it down to the car not being completely weight balanced... its not exactly a BMW I notice it on high speed bumps too, a very very slightly wonky bounce
