VS Calais V6
Just wondering my VS Calais sits 30mm lower on the passenger side measured from the top of the wheel arch to the tyre. It makes a slight noise when braking hard or going over a speed bump like a small knock sound. Before I get a mechanic/car suspension specialist to look at it, I was wondering what it could be? Could it be a strut that's been damaged or a wheel bearing? There isn't any uneven tyre wear either.

perhaps the shocks are stuffed from bumps/pot holes, or the springs have sagged? I'm sure you would have mentioned if you drove into a gutter or something. it is odd though. I know in my old WH statesman I drove into a traffic island gutter edge thingy whilst staring at a chick and that bent my strut making the car sit lower on one side.

sounds like worn strut tops.
