My caddy

I recently bought my caddy and first agenda
Was getting it lowered. I used a dark side super low kit and front coilovers. My rear wheel seems to be sitting forward and hasn’t centralised like the super low kit should. Has anyone seen this problem before and know what I’ve done wrong?

It's difficult to say what has gone wrong here, you haven't given us a photo of how it's been put together. It's safe to say something isn't quite rite.

I’ll get a photo up I think I may have put the middle plate ( one with location hole in) the wrong way round forcing the axle forward I’ll post a picture up at the weekend when I have another look

looks like it....is the hole offset in that kit?

Its an easy mistake to make, when your lying on the floor underneath it, looking upwards!

Looks like you've fitted the plates the wrong way around, from what I can gain from the photo of the plate in situ.

How long have you been running around like that, the plates look ancient.
