    Help! Coupe tilted on the right back side

    Hy guys!
    I have a big problem.....after changing 4 suspension kit's (including the stock suspension) the car is still tilted on the right back side.
    Changed the dampers between them,changed the springs too....but still....tilted.
    Now it's worse cause i have wheels with ET35 and the tyre is rubbing on the right wheel arch.....
    What could it be?
    I had adjustable coilovers and tried to set the right one higher...but still the same...
    Could it be the bushes on the rear beam? Is there any adjustment that i have to do?
    The car doesn't wobble at high speed, it goes in a straight line with my hands off the steering wheel..........
    Thanks for any advice......
    Cheers

    The tyre is rubbing the wheel arch when i hit a bump or the road is not leveled, stuff like that.....
    The car is lowered by 40mm now......but there is a difference bethween left and right of aprox 1.5cm......
    When it's on the elevator, the left side goes lower than the right side......
    The rear beam is ok.....there is no sign of damage and repair........

    Its got to be the difference between the springs or dampers ie if you swapped them over it would tilt to the other side

    I've allready swapped them....but still no difference.
    When i had a set of raceland coilovers, i tried to set the right side higher than the left side.....but no luck.....the spring compressed more....and the result was the same
    When i lift the back to change the springs and dampers.....the rear beam doesn't come down equally....the left side (the one that is ok) is lower than the right side......with no springs or dampers fitted.
    That is why i tihink it's because of the rear beam bushes........

    Bushes do make a difference, but i think your car may have been in a bump at some time,
    I hope i'm wrong, have you looked closely at your reg documents? or checked the car details out by a search?
