I've been noticing my left rear leaf spring has more sag lately and was wondering the best approach towards repairs? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks you guys!

Many years ago I had a firm here in Vancouver do my 105e springs. They re-arched and re-tempered them, when I had them done I had them add an extra leaf as well as de-arching them a bit to lower the car. It worked out well but I don't know if there is many places around that do that type of work these days??
You might find a company like this one closer to your home?

Good luck with it.

Steve.

How old are your shocks ? A worn shock will tilt the r/e to that side.
Remove them and see if the problem corrects and check the shocks by hand.

Thanks Brett I'll be looking into that information.

Pete, the rear Koni shocks have been on the car for awhile so good call on that one! I'll check them this weekend and if bad I'll send them out for a redo.

Thanks you guys now I have something to go by!
