    Eibach springs by chance?


    The design of the F-Body was actually made for a driver in the drivers seat. So without that weight, it will lean a touch. NOW....it shouldn't be anywhere near an inch of difference.

    When swapping out springs they need to be mounted a certain way so they don't do what you just described, now I know you didn't swap springs but how did you jack the car up?

    To me it just looks like it's sitting on an uneven spot in the concrete..

    Don't worry about it when on an incline. Several factors come into play when parked on something not-so-flat.

    Check the rear spring orientation, The lower pigtails should both face forward.
    If they don't that is part of your problem.
    And BTW after my Strano/Koni swap the car sits 1/4" higher on the left side.

    Nice looking car ! I love chrome wheels on Pewter.
    Besides SOM, it is my favorite color.
    I had a Pewter 2001 Chevy Silverado and a SOM 2003 Chevy Avalanche.
    This black SS I have now is a bitch. Looks mean though when it is clean.
