If you've replaced the bushings, did you tighten them while the car was jacked up? You might want to check the archives if you did - I think they might be the same as the front bushings, eg tighten them when the weight of the car is on them...

Anyone out there on the board ever experience after they have elevated (rear only) the 750iL for a week or two to replace all the bushing... after completion of the major task, the rear gap between the wheels and the body is a staggering 3"-4" or so compare to the previous minimum 1" or so??!! Anyone ever experiece this before? How can i get the rear down to what it was coz the current gap make the car look really ugly!


750iL 1988
