David,
Are all 4 tyres the same size? Also is the front equally level at the two sides? Are all the tyres equally inflated?

For the benefit of the non-British contributors to this forum, NSR and OSR stand for nearside rear and offside rear respectively. They refer to the side of the car closest to the pavement (or sidewalk) in the UK. Near side means the side nearest to the pavement and offside means the side furthest away form the pavement.
It took me many years to grasp all of this when I lived in the UK.

As Omar says, check those points first . .

You may need to add some shims to even it up.

One spring weak or broken a coil.

One been replaced , one original.

I can't answer your question David, But, for fear of being lambasted off this forum, I like your red calipers. Did you do them yourself? Are the front ones red also? I have been thinking about doing the same.
Sorry gents

Mark,

If the car is being driven the way the designers/engineers envisaged, the calipers should always be red[hot] .

Thank you everyone. Sorry for the delay I have been away. Will check out all your suggestions. The Calipers were done when I bought the car and I quite like them.
