    Hi there, I have recently fitted coilovers to my e60. All went well and its quite low to be honest (call me stupid). Ive now noticed that the steering is fairly vague and the rear end is quite sloppy as if something is loose/worn. The front will glide over bumps but the rear seems to 'hop' left...
