Well my beemer is a 5spd, and so when i park the car i always use the hand brake. The deal is when i park on an incline with the handbrake only, the rear right side lifts about 2 inches and stays that way. And this also happens parking downhill in that same side except it drops 2 inches. This won't happend in a leveled floor. I checked rear shocks and springs, even the handbrake but they're ok.
Has someone ever experience this before?

Yeah, you need to adjust your park brake. THere are 2 cables that come up to the lever. The trick is to get both sides of the car to lift (or drop) the same amount.

Take your park brake lever boot off and you'll see them. There are also DIY's on here somewhere to guide you through it.
