    My car leans on the passenger side

    The rear of the car leans on the passenger side and wanted to know if you guys think it could be a bad spring. The suspension is all stock. I also get some wheel hop on that side only.

    If you look at the left then the right springpads on the axle you'll notice that the right pad angles the spring back, it's not flat like the drivers side(this is on the factory 10 bolt axle,I don't know about 9" or 12 bolts) .That angle also causes some lowering springs to get bent,I know because my first set of lowering springs (eibach pro kit) bent down by the pigtail on the right spring making it worse(sit even lower).

    The different angle on right pad causes it to sit lower, and where the spring pigtail sits will also affect the ride height(try some different positions with the pigtail).
    Hypercoil brand springs(LG or kenny brown lowering springs) don't seem to bend(like the eibachs).and also the H&R springs, don't know about any other brands
