Rear suspension sagging on one side

I noticed that the rear suspension on the passenger side is slightly sagging compared the the rear driver side. It's clearly visible. Would that be covered under the original 4 year/80k warranty?

Has anyone else had that problem?

Anything that's defective in materials or workmanship is covered. Whether that's the case is usually what ends up being the bone of contention.

That sounds like a blown out shock. If that's the case it's a wear item and you won't get it fixed under warranty

Thanks for your input guys.

I just had a full inspection at the dealer and the service rep assured me there's nothing wrong and it's actually quite common the design of the car creates this impression that it is uneven compared to the front wheel gap. On top of that I have M Adaptive Suspension which actually lowers the height of the car by about 0.5 - 1 inch. After a few looks, it's actually not that bad all. So false alarm =)

I guess I was just trying to find anything to fix if they don't look absolutely perfect =) because warranty expires in 2 weeks and i'm not purchasing the extended warranty... With tax included it costs nearly to $4.5k for 2 years only

Took the opportunity to have the power kit installed too. Love it.
