Drivers wheel spin

Ok guys after changing rear hub front steering arms top and bottom .track rod and bottom ball joint all drivers side . all looking good .I now have a hole in my airbag only evident when put on off road hight .But leaking none the less . When exelarating drivers wheel is spinning and not gripping the road .Ok when underway .Drivers side suspension is down a couple of inches but stays there and pump is not running all the time .I have ordered new strut and hope it is that that is causing wheel slip .Or should I be looking at something else.

If the strut is leaking an the car isn’t sat right, the weight distribution on the wheel won’t be the same. My TD6 used to spin a rear wheel on a slope when I had a leak in my diagonally opposite strut. Never did it before and didn’t after I replaced both front struts.

Might not be that of course, but I’d get the car fixed and then see.

Just my 2p.
