    Vehicle Lean

    Hi Guys!

    I have a very noticeable 1/2 lean to the rear of the car after I hit a huge cut out on the highway...

    I took the springs out today and inspected for cracks, height and tension but did not notice a difference between the two..

    any other suggestions?? sway bar perhaps??

    Hotchiks front and rear lowering springs..

    Thanks!
