    Uneven ride height

    I noticed that my right wheel well sits half an inch higher than my left, what would be the cause of this? Tire pressure is even.

    I will check my left rear shock for leaks tomorrow.Click image for larger version.

    Measure the window frame.

    It could be so many different things.

    How is the condition of the the 4 link bushings? It could be uneven front setup, uneven pavement, uneven springs (have they been cut)

    Leaky shocks wont make the car sag to one side, the springs take the weight.

    springs sag from the extra weight of you in the car over time?
    If there's one thing I've learned from the first two thirds of the MC Hammer Biography, it's that money never runs out.
