Is my suspension off???

I noticed this today on my way to class. I'm parked on a flat surface so neither tire is higher that the other. I did a finger test and on the rear drivers side I can get three fingers between the wheel well and the tire but the passenger side I can only fit two (snug) any ideas on what this could be? I've attached a pic of both sides

maybe you got a spring sagging or your ISOs need replacing not sure.

I'm the second owner and I'm pretty sure max motorsports. I've been thinking of some eibach sport lines recently and this might do it for me

Do you know how long you have had those springs on stock shocks, Could be shocks are going out and leaking perhaps. Check under and look at the shocks.

I'm pretty sure they are stock. The previous owner said he didn't get to upgrade those. Ill get under there today and take a look. Thanks for your help bro, much appreciated

Thats the new edge for ya... tons of people have this same issue but dont even realize it. I have the same issue. My buddy at work same issue. My old new edge same issue. LOL.. my buddies new edge down in FL SAME ISSUE.. im not kidding. One explanation is - You ever see a pic of a new edge accelerating from the dig? You will usually see the driver side front higher than the passenger. This puts more stress on the passenger side rear. Over time this causes this uneven issue.

Correct me if im wrong but bad shocks wouldnt make one side lower. You can compress them by hand so they certainly arnt holding the car up... Simply dampening bumps
