Unhappy 2004 V6 leans to the left side

I put new shocks on my 2004 V6 recently because it rode pretty ****ty, and now I've started to notice that it leans to the left side pretty significantly. They were brand new shocks. Please Help.....

Shocks have nothing to do with ride height or the way the car sits. How many miles does your car have and is all the suspension stock otherwise.

Maybe one of your tires is low on air? 130,000 w stock suspension? I'd be looking at front sway bar end links. Since they're rubber they tend to crack and break over time. Could you post a pic of the car leaning?

Your springs could be just getting tired too with it being the left side and that's the drivers side they may be weaker then the right side

To the OP, save yourself a headache and just start replacing some of those suspension components. I know this has nothing to do with the lean but I would go ahead and start doing that.

Back when I took my stock springs out of my car it had a slight lean to it as well and come to find out when I was taking the springs out to cut them one was actually rusted and broken on the bottom coil. So id check that out, hope this helps!
