    I have recently fitted Eibach Pro-Kit springs to my 330ci sport convertible but have found that the height on each wheel seems to change and on either side the height is different. Today is was lower on the right at the back and now this evening the left is lower, this also seems to happen on the front. Baffled Yes! Is that i need to upgrade the shocks so they settle the car evenly?

    Park the car on a flat surface and measure from the lip of the wheel (at the bottom) to the arch. Write down the measurement for each corner. Then move the car forwards about a foot and repeat the process. Then do exactly the same for a third time.

    These readings will be far more accurate. You should notice that the offside rear (driver side) sits slightly lower

    Please let us know how you get on
