Does it work? If it goes straight leave it alone. You could be opening a big ol can of worms. Mine goes straight as an arrow and it is higher on the passenger side..I bought the car 10 years ago as a roller and asked the guy what did what in the suspension and all he would say was "Don't f#@k with it it works!" :shock: So I have never messed with it. lol

if the car is not preloaded heavy on the driver,which would cause this condition. i would measure the distance from the floor to the bottom of the front frame horn,s, to make sure they were same height. do this on as flat a surface as possible, if the pass side frame horn is lower for any reason, weak spring, bad shock, diff roll out on tires, ect, this would cause the driver side rear to be too high, rather than pass side too low, hope this helps.

Take it somewhere and have it scaled, maybe it has a huge amount of preload on the driver side, either ladder bar or spring.
