66 Cyclone seems to sit uneven when measure the heights

I have a 66 Cyclone. When I measure from the ground the left and right wheel wells one side is 1/2 higher then the other. The tiers are the same size, the floor is level, all the supension parts are the same. When I place a level across the fender and over the shock towers it is level. I measured from inside fender to the uper control arm and one control arm is 1/2 inch higher. how do I fix this so all parts of my car is level. Ed

You need to shim the low side to match the high side. The factory did not care about a 1/2 inch here or there!!
