Yep, one tire was installed the wrong way (rotation) , the other 3 were all balanced well.

I should have went all in and gotten the new lower control arm kit however I was lead to believe the suspension had all been done (had not) so Im going to have to 'do it' , but at least getting the struts in with new mounts and reinforcement plates will be a big step in the right direction.
Cant wait for the weekend.
My only other issue is the microswitch combo latch on my passenger (right) Side is shady (needs adjustment) and the plastic bushing on the bowden cable is broken, causing my tonneau cover to misbehave. I know of 2 junkyard Cabriolets that I will be raiding this weekend hopefully to get new latchs with cables.
I found a few websites with the specific adjustment procedures BMW TIS Online • 3' E36
That link is god for me right now!
