89 5.0

My 5.0 is leaning lower on left side than the right side. I need some pointers on how to isolate the prob and fix it. Thx mike.

Probably the suspension is worn. Push up and down on each corner to see if any side is softer/harder than the others.

More than likely a spring is sagging or busted because springs are what gives you your ride height not shocks or strutshocks.

Could be a deteriorated rubber spring isolator. That can easily drop it lower than the rest of the car. My spring was broken off in the isolator which made it dip a little bit more than the rest of the car. I put some new springs on and it corrected the issue.

The front driver's side of a fox body is notorious for dipping compared to the rest of the car because you have the battery, A/C condensor which is deceivingly heavy, coolant overflow tank and washer fluid tanks all up on the front LH side of the car as well as the driver being on the LH side of the car all the time.
