Re: Suspension rear nearside low

Your firend may well be correct. Depending on the age many have what's known as torsion bar rear suspension which is prone to failing where the inner end of the bars connect to the rear sub-frame.

Have a look underneath and if you see no coil springs then that will confirm if yours has the torsion bar system.
