tony@roadstershop you mentioned that you put in new springs recently? how long ago and what springs were they?

the next thing you need to identify is it the front leaning down or is it the the other side in the rear pushing it up which will in turn cross load the opposite corner.

If you installed new rear leafs as well... I would lift the car up, loosen up the shackle bolts with the car in the air... then set it on the ground and tighten em back up. remember, especially with poly bushing hardware not to over tighten which causes it to bind up.

This is some pretty accurate measurements that personally I would'nt worry about. If you really want it level, I would cut the coil spring on the high side before I would add a spacer to the low side. What kind of shocks are you using and are they new?

poncho62 Betcha, its a Nova or another GM of that body style...If it is, you are lucky it goes down the road straight, not dog legged....Have seen so many like that.

Most cars are not even all the way around, 3/4" isn't a whole lot.

Pulling up behind my car today I noticed it is leaning. I took out a ruler and the left side sits 3/4" lower then the right. I know what your thinking lose 100 lbs. It has coils in front and leaf in back all are new. I was thing of using spacers under the front drivers side coil to level it out. What do you guys think?
