on my mini z the tires on the right side are looser than the left left side.

ok. well. today w i wass driving my z on my side walk and it went off the ceme t and in the dirt and it stopped after going like six inches far in the dirt and i put the brakes on and it stopped put it hit some grass. now my suspension on the right side is a little easier to bush up than the left side. and when i pull the wheels alittle bit on the right side. it comes out farther than the left. can you guys tell me like what made these looser and the suspension easier to push up. can you tell me what i should do to make it as good as new???

make sure the wheelnuts are tight. i know its dumb, but everyone overlooks it once or twice. as for the suspension, are you talking about the front or rear suspension?

EDIT: i forgot to add that you ought to take the wheels off the car, and compare the holes in the middle (for lack of a better word). if the ones on the right are worn oddly, or cracked, or something like that, you need to replace the wheels. other than that, just check all suspension-related components for damage. you may have hit something you didnt see and damaged your car.

Center your steering trim.
Switch the wheels left to right and see if anything's different.
Are you running stock bushings or bearings?
