If I understand correctly, M3 tension struts (JTC1423 and JTC1424) would help with that at the cost of some NVH?

Definitely worth installing the LCAs (JTC1426 and JTC1427) at the same time if you haven't already, then get everthing aligned nicely.

The shop who do most of my maintenance said they are free, comparable to a new car. So I'm just being to an al :roll: Can't remember if there's anything on the back of the pads, the lots was fitted summer last year.. But it's a good point, I'll ask if they'll take a look at it.

That's the plan! Front control arm(rubber) anyway. More on that in Ian's suspension thread.. :thumbs:
