slight wheel height difference..

Yes slight wheel height difference from each wheel even when parked on a levellled ground. I have brand new shocks installed a few months ago. Im changing the jounce bumpers next week at the rear. Anyone know what this can be ?

We've been through this before. Is this different?

You need to quantify "slight". 1/8", 1/4", 1/2"?
Are you raising an issue of a difference between front to back meaning you are expecting car to sit level, or side to side indicating car is leaning? Measuring from ground to top of wheel arch?

Right now, this is how my own car is sitting. Measuring from ground to top of arch;

LR 24 3/4"
RR 25 1/4"

LF 24 1/4"
RF 24 1/2"

sagged springs, bent/tweaked sway bar, twisted chassis...if the measurement was taken at the arch not the rail it could be as simple as panel alignment

thats usefull atleast then you know its that side...question is where is the measurement comming from IE frame height arch height...i know that some alignment machines base the measurement from wheel to wheel measurements which can sckew things alot

i still stand by my original assesment..you just ruled out the springs is all

"if" you park a car with a sway bar in the same off angle spot day after day youll settle the swaybar into an off angle position that can hold for a very long time...its not bent per say so much as tweaked and needs to be not parked in that spot ever again
