Car sits uneven add'l info

The car sat uneven before I started cutting. I originally cut both the same amount thinking my garage floor might be uneven. The car had been sitting/neglected for at least a year. I used a cut-off wheel. Don't know how old the springs are. I did a new measurement and the right side still 1 1/2-in. higher.

Make sure you use the post reply and not the post new thread button..
I would take out the springs and see if they are the same height, if not, cut to fit...If so, then one spring is prob. weaker than the other, and it's time for new springs. I'm not familiar at all with the susp. on that car, so maybe there's some adjustability to it, but I doubt it.
You can try to cut the springs until the height matches, but it's going to make the spring rates different, and may effect your handling.

did you do anything with the fronts? Sometimes front spring sag will make the rear look uneven. It's a diagonal thing. put jack stands evenly on their lowest setting under the front subframe with the front tires off the ground, then check the rear for level.
