Default My parking situation

So I have to park on an uneven sidewalk and I'm wondering if this will have any short term or long term effects on the car any insight would be thankful

As you can see to the right it's a bit elevated it's not rough or anything though.

Parking shouldn't have any affect on your Z. But jacking up your car and working on it is a no-no on an uneven surface like that.

Alright that's good to hear I was starting to think it may have some negative effects on the dampeners or something.

Are you thinking in terms of excessive chassis flexing? If it's not an extreme angle I wouldn't worry much. I have had to park in driveways like that.

So this should not be much to worry about than. Unfortunately I can't just sit the right tires leftwards were it's even due to how small the road is, someone would definitely scrape my car which has happened once to my other car.

The FM chassis the Z is built on is very rigid. There won't be any flex THERE. Perhaps if you left your car loaded on one side of the suspension for a couple of YEARS, there might be some spring deflection, but there'd be bigger problems that that to deal with.

None whatsoever. You're just going through ''new car paranoia''.
