Default Front tire rubbing lower spring pad

Hey everybody-

Today I changed my oil, transmission fluid, and did a CDV delete on my '03 M3 Coupe (72k miles). The car rode fine beforehand, and is sitting on stock 18" wheels and tires. I jacked the car up twice in the process, and removed the wheels for cleaning.

After I lowered the car the last time, the passenger front tire is rubbing against the lower spring pad.

Ride height seems within spec on the passenger side (24"), but slightly high on the driver's side (24 5/8"). It seems like the problem may have gotten worse (rubbing sound harder; I drove the car 30 miles before garaging it again (didn't recognize what problem was at first.)

It seems like the lower spring pad may be rotated on the passenger side, but I'm not sure how this would happen or how to fix it.

If anyone would like; I can e-mail you pictures of the driver and passenger side suspension.

Does anyone have any ideas on what is wrong or how to fix the problem?

Thanks,
Mark
