    Car is leaning to the right

    My 2002 camaro is sagging/leaning to the passenger side by about 1/2 inch. I know this is not that uncommon. I had a 1991 that did the same thing but I didnít keep it long enough to fit it plus I read other people on the forum too. My guess is that the torque side.

    So here are the spec's
    2002 SS 6spd w/ 58k daily diver

    18x9.5 and 18x10.5 wheels
    sway bar
    upper and lower a-arms (heim joint)
    k-member
    engine strut
    sway bars
    eibach sport springs
    Diamond sub frame connectors
    koni singe adjustable
    Torque arm bar
    Lower control arms
    LCA relocatin kit
    pan hard bar
    Tunnel brace

    I've had these parts on the car for about 40k. I thought about replacing the springs but I didnt think they would go bad within 50k miles.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    are either the TQ arm or PHB adjustable/done-so properly?

    They are both adjustable. But it has been some time since I last checked. I'll take another look and see if it losened up. I didnt know the pan hard could affect ride height, though it was just for axle alingment.

    Well I finally got around to adjusting the PHB, 4 tunes more, so I'd about 1/4 inch lenght and the pass side still 1/2 inch lower then the driverside. What gives? The cars at 59k miles and at least 55k on the Eibach sportline springs.

    I just measured mine and the drivers side is 1/4 inch higher. I have a pro-kit in mine. 26" to bottom of the fenders on the passenger side and 26 1/4 on the drivers. The rear fenders are 1/8" lower than the fronts on both sides. The driveway isn't completely even, but as close as I have here.

    Are you sitting on the bump stops? I have very little room between my bump stops and axel with the pro-kit even.

    I have the jensal bump stop mod kit from SLP, but no the car is not ride on the bump stops. Werid huh.. I've had 3 F-body cars in the passed ranging from 79-87-92-02 and they all did this after about 50k miles. Leaning to the pass side. So people tell me its because of the torque is on the pass side rear wheel that causes the spring to soften earlier. I cant figure it out. Tried all my adjustable parts and though it did ride better it isnt even. I dont want to get a set of coil-overs just to level the car. Then again if I get one new spring for the pass rear then that might make the car ride funny because it not even with the other ones. Any thoughts?
