    so 'pad fix' aside what causes it?
    is the subframe bushes different on that side?
    subframe shape?
    alloy arm shaped differently?

    I spent an hour checking with a steel rule and a tape measure - I just can't work out where the 20mm is coming from- both sides look the same.
    which leads me to think the subframe bushes are weak on that side - allowing it to drop??

    somebody must ruddy know....a £35k car would not have a lean from factory imho

    I know - it's so frustrating - The weather is against me currently but when I have time in the spring I will tear down the rear subframe and suspension parts and get to the bottom of it.
    I will be ordering the sticking plaster fix for now - did you want one from the pr that I'm going to order from Turnermsports??

    cheers

    thick pads from turners - it's $55 shipping + the pads. I have emailed the UK distro to see what price they can do them for.
    apols for talking in riddles.....sticking plaster as I'm convinced something else is amiss.........
