Hi all. First post here. Great site with lots of information.

Recently after a hard launch (can help that once in a while), it now feels like the rear driver's side suspension is soft and loose and all over when ever I hit a bump in the road (especially on a corner). I didn't hear anything snap or break and having looked I don't see anything broken or out of place. I did notice that the rear suspension is not centered (the driver's side wheel sticks out a little while the passenger side does not (maybe 1/2 inch difference or so). I also noticed that the rear driver's side sits higher (the left fender is about 3/4 inch higher then the right side). Don't know if either the un-centered or higher side was pre-existing before the problems started. Everything is stock.

Any thoughts on what the problem might be? Thanks.

Stock I believe all of our cars are off-center from 1/4"-1/2". I haven't heard from a height difference from side-to-side though. :simmadown:

Off center is normal, but not different height. Bad shock maybe? I'd take it into your dealer.
