Trouble with suspension

Before I got my Tein Flex Master kit, I was hit in the rear left corner but it looked like all that happened was a cracked bumper. I was in a hurry and the bumper was cracked on the other side anyways so I didn't worry about it.

Well, after a friend and I installed the new suspension the rear left slowly sags, or lowers and when you hit bad bumps it makes the worst knocking sound ever. Sometimes it makes the sound when the right side hits a really bad bump as well.

It did stop lowering to a point, it's a between a 1/4" and 1/2" lower than the other side.

Any ideas before I take it some where? I figure that the double wishbone is messed up.

Sounds like a bad ball joint or perhaps your lower arm bushings? Get it up in the air and inspect them all for play or obvious damage.

I will do that. Also, the knocking noise gets worse and more frequent as that corner lowers.

My sway bar was loose. My road rage is gone and I coudn't be happier. On a down note though, both of my front ball joints are bad and so is my Left CV joint. It was an expensive day.
