Need some advice on this, The right rear of the car sits a bit lower than the left. Noticeable when viewing from the rear. I have also noticed that the tire will rub occassionally. Most likely over heavy bump or right hand turn at speed. I cannot see anything broken or bent. Is the most likely culprit the spring and/or shock? anything else I should inspect?

TIA
Ed

Sound to me like you have a rear spring that has packed up. Are your shockers adjustable base? If so, put a few turns on the spring. If you are going to replace, try to purchase adjustable shocks and springs. I would check your bushings while you are at it. Super-flex makes replacement bushes.
Let us know what you find.

Thanks for the info. That confirms my thoughts that it must be the spring. The current shocks are not adjustable. As this looks like a replacement project, any suggestions for sourcing the shocks and springs?
