I have a 2015 Jaguar XF Sport with the 3.0 S/C AWD with approx. 34k miles on it. I have noticed that the rear end of the car is sitting about 3/4inch lower than the front of the car on both sides. Is this a common thing with these cars? What are my options to correct this? I am thinking of ways to raise the rear up or possibly switching out the front springs to lower the front down to match the back. Not sure what would be the better solution.

Any help or advice is appreciated, thank you

According to the spec front should be 1/2” higher. However, you have to be on same tyre diameter on all 4 corners, checked tyre pressures, have standard weight(no extra items on the boot), top up all fluids before measuring it. Also, How are you measuring it?

That has to be the most random bit of research ever done on this forum. 10/10 Hamed!

Wow so it seems as if nothing as wrong. I wish i never noticed this because every time I look at the car from the side I cant un-see it lol. Glad to know nothing is wrong though.

It’s very common on beemers, esp the M cars for the front to sit higher than the rear. It’s been the case at least as far back as my mate’s E60 M5.

No wonder XFRS front bumper on my XFS is too close to the ground.
