With the car cold (!) check the clearance between the front of the rear
subframe and the exhaust. There's a very precise path for the exhaust
to pass through, and after-market exhausts often foul the subframe or CV
joint. When the bottom of the pipe is suddenly cooled, it contracts and
the pipe becomes concave along its length - the centre section lifts,
and the front and rear are pressed downwards.
I had this problem for _ages_ - very careful checking of the exhaust
suspension rings fixed it.
