TR4/4A TR4A IRS Exhaust

New exhaust on this weekend. Decided to go with stock, with stainless down pipe and y-pipe using stocks clamps. Everything back together thanks to my brother and a few Mike's HL's. I'm happy with the sound, am am thrilled to drive again and move on to other areas. Other than deciding what type of tips to put on the exhaust, I want to go through the rear suspension and check the mounts etc.

I noticed a tilt with the drivers rear about 3/8 lower than the passenger's side. Anything specific I should look for while I'm under there?

Thanks
JD

JD I would first make sure the car is sitting on a REALLY flat surface, check with a long (4 ft.) spirit level.
If the car is not sitting level as indicated by different clearance from tire to lip of the wheel arch or by using the spirit level across the top of the rear wings then you need to see if the spring on the driver side has sagged, or possibly a spacer is missing.
You could take out both the coils and see if the free height is the same- assuming from the IRS badge that you have coil springs!

Thanks, nothing scientific just an observation and follow-up tape measure from floor to upper wheel well using the knockoff as a center line. You'd think in Illinois finding a good flat surface would be easy! It's too nice out today to put back up on stands, so it will have to wait! I'm putting on a quick wax to keep the bugs from sticking (really makes the warts jump out on a black finish) then I'm off to do some more "test" driving! :driving:
