car isn't level side to side

my car has had three different kinds of springs in them so i know it's not the springs, or how i install them.

my driver's side is 1/2" lower than my passenger side. both front and rear as well. what the hell has caused this, it's always been this way.

they will tend to lean a bit on one set of springs after a while, espically if you always drive it alone.

you're right, about a dozen guys have told me the same thing. mine just is more noticeable. rellik, nothing's adjustable, and yes y'all, i'm out of the car when i'm looking at it of course. the 4 cyl front springs are very soft and have helped level it some since i installed them and they settled.

thats normal too, but if it really concerns you, just replace the springs. You can do the shocks too if you are really paranoid. My car used to do it, but about 10k miles ago, I put steeda sport drop springs in my car.

Global West makes a remedy for it Tire. They are called spring perch spacers for the rear springs. They come in several different sizes, if you car leans 1/2 inch, get the 1/2 inch one, put it on the side it is leaning to, should correct it.
http://www.globalwest.net/mustang%20...erch%20spacers I just looked, 5/8" is as close to 1/2 inch as they make, but that should fix you up pretty close to level.
