Suspension Seems Off

Hi all,

I recently notice my bmw 325i is not right, it seems the rear right end of the wheel is lower then the rear left, so pretty much to say, its swaying on my end,

I measured it and it seems 2cm off, is this a major issue ?? Should i be concerned? would it cost alot???

Thanks all in advance !

The rear camber is fully ajustable so unless you have bent something it can be sorted out with a wheel alignment

Sounds like you're talking about the toe or camber, can't tell from your discription.

Is the tyre also balding on one edge or wearing unevenly or look flakey and shredded? A wheel alignment should straighten it out, about $75-95 depending where you go. If it's been off for a while, you may be up for some new tyres too if they're worn out

If it's ride height, it could be a busted or worn mount or strut or something like that. You'll need to get it checked out by a mechanic
