Exclamation e36 bottoming out problem

I'm having trouble with my 93 325is right rear wheel bottoming out and hitting the top with only small bumps, it has ac schnitzer springs and bilstein shocks and I also notice a rattling coming from that side specifically (are they related?). can anyone help?

Do you have subframe bushings? If you do, you can check and see if that bushing is shot. My previous E30 had that bumping and slight rattle and they were NOT fun to change. You might also want to check the top of your rear shocks and make sure they are tight.

Yea you might want to check out your Rear Shock mounts, they might need replacing.
