Rear Suspension Height

Post by M77TYL » Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:59 am

Hi, (new to the forum) Hello everyone, im looking for some help with my 2011 Tekna.

Ive just noticed that the rear suspension is slightly out, as the rear nearside is higher than the offside. The offside seems to be about the same as the front suspension so going by that i think the nearside is at fault!?

Anyone come across this or hazard a guess to the problem, i sense there is a knocked noise now and then from the rear but i cant be 100% sure.

Thanks

Had a read through the Rear axle replacement post, doesn't appear to be the noise i can hear from the youtube video. Seems the Rear axle replacement is for the newer model?

The only time I had a similar problem was with a broken spring on an MX-5 - it was only broken by the end and not immediately obvious until the wheel was taken off to inspect.

I thought I had this problem on my J10 but with the near side rear lower than the off side. Noticed it quite a few times when parked in my carport with concrete base - supposedly flat. I took it to the dealer who checked it and said all was fine. After that I never noticed the problem again and I still check occassionally three years on.

No idea what caused my intial concern - I did actually measure it and noticed about a 2 - 3 cm difference. May be it was just the way I'd stopped when parking.

This sounds exactly the same as i am suffering from? Noticed it the first time a couple of weeks agi but i was parked on rough ground and put it down to that, but it had played on my mind a bit as the ground didnt appear to be off enough to make such a difference.

Measured on my drive and its the same around 2cm difference, My drive slopes forward so wouldnt expect the rear to be different by so much.

Its a very odd one!

Thanks for the replies :)
