Right, I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to suspension, so I'm after advice to sort this problem.

Car is lowered 40mm front and 35mm rear and theres no uneven wear on any of the other tyres, execpt rear offside which has wear on the inside of it.

What would be causing this, where can I get this sorted or what can I buy to sort it?

Joe, on the pic below shows camber settings, this might be the problem you are having. (bottom pic)



As said above go and get the tracking done and set and it might get rid of the problem. Demon Tweeks sell some parts to get rid on Negative camber.

IIRC the camber on an E36 isnt adjustable....

HAve you checked the obvious - tyre pressures, springs are sitting in the cups correctly...?

Yeah, I've checked the obvious. I check the tyre pressures on a regular basis.

Will get the tracking done then.

Tracking will only adjust the toe on the front wheels think

If its an alignment issue you will need a full geometry check and I think the closest place to do that its Demon Tweeks.

Have a look at the rear bushes / arms and check for wear and damage smile

Rear trailing arm bushes go out to lunch very easily on E36's. And tracking is not possible beyond 1 degree of movement from elongated mounting holes...

Dont need to go somewhere like Demon Tweeks, thatll cost a fortune Im sure.

Just need a flat surface, 2 pieces of string, 2 weights, 4 Jerry Cans, a ruler and a spirit level (Preferably Digital) for camber, and youll be fine laugh laugh yipee
