I have searched and found it to be a spring problem in the past. But i'm beginning to think it is something else. The driver side back end of my car sits a good 1" lower then the right side. It is driving me insane at the moment. The weird thing is that it has no effect on handling, or tracking of the car at all. Wtf is going on here guys? Springs? Subframe? It would have to be something drastic for it to sit an whole inch lower, correct? I just need a few ideas to toss around while the car is down for the winter.
PS: The car was in a accident, but was saftied again back in 94.
I think he should start dating heavier women.. assuming he means the left side like the manuals do (drivers side). . he gets a heavier woman, he'll weigh down the right side and everything will be happy..

I'm having the same problem. I just changed out my shocks and springs and I'm still having the issue. All my shocks and springs were toast (original) but even after I changed out to brand new tokico shocks and tanabe springs I still get the slant. Any Ideas?

I know this is in the 2nd gen sec but my 1st gen is like .5 to 3/4 an inch lower on the driver side too. New springs and shocks...but no new bushings. I also just did wheels and tires all the same...maybe I need bushings? It is not too drastic, but enough that I know it is there.
Pass side I can stick a finger in. Drive side finger does not fit at all....

"Anybody tells you money is the root of all evil, doesn't f*cking have it..."
I'm guessing the bushings that are on the stock shocks (not sure what they are called) but there are 1 to 2 on each shock when you pull them off. So I just put the same ones back on. They didn't look warn out or dry rotted.
this is gonna sound a bit crazy and correct me if this isnt true but my car sags only when the handbrake is on so the other day i had my car on jack stands checking some things and i noticed i could spin my one tire with the handbrake on and my car sags to the side where the hand brake works so check the hight wiht the hand brake on and off that my .02
