    car sits 3/4 inch lower on pass. front ( help?)

    just bought the car a month ago. noticed it sat 3/4" to 1" lower on the passenger front, and it rubbed. it had eibach goldlines in it. just today had new hotchkis springs and new struts installed and is still leaning on that side. the lip of the wheel is scraped up so it looks like the previous owner hit a curb with it. what could this be? something bent? does anyone know someone i can call?
    any input would be appreciated

    could be a bent spindle, k member tweaked, etc... just look real good underneath. do an alignment check, if they can't get it into specs, then you should be able to find damaged parts.

    after the springs and struts, they aligned it and said everything was great. i called them when i got home and asked if they measured to see if everything leveled out. he said the front matched and the back matched when it left his shop, and added that i must have hit something on the way home and threw it off. so im taking it back tomarrow for him to see with his own two eyes.

    sub frame connectors Look under the car along the side. If you have them they are proberbly welded in place on the frame. It is optional to make the car stronger and create less flex.
