Suspension height differs by 1/2" side-to-side

Hello folks,

On my 47 Plymouth, the passenger side sits about 1/2" higher than the driver's side. I know it seems like an insignificant amount, but it is noticeable and is driving me crazy.

The front suspension is a complete clip from a 1972 Nova, and the rear end is from the same Nova. The rear leaf springs are stock 47 Plymouth.

There is an anti-sway bar installed on the rear suspension. Typical installation, with the end links mounted to the frame, and the center of the sway bar mounted to the top of the rear axle via u-clamps and rubber bushings.

Could the (anti) sway bar be causing the difference in the side-to-side height differential? If not, could worn front coil springs be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Ken
