I've had this leaning problem exactly as you've described since I bought my car. I am going to fix the bastard come hell or high water because it does look really bad.Blk89GT said:My 89 GT has the same problem. mine is in the rear though. The front is slightly off because the rear is WAY off! The drivers side rear sits pretty low (fenderlip even with tire almost) and the passenger side has a whopping 3 inches of space between the tire and fenderlip. Looks really bad!!
Maybe it will even out once I install new shocks, struts, LCA's with good bushings. One weird thing ive noticed about the rear of the car..... when the car is on stands and the rear is hanging freely, if I place a jack under the differential cover and start jacking it up, one side starts to go up about an inch before the other side starts to go up. And when I lower it, after one side stops, the other side is still falling about an inch.
CPA keep me posted man. I almost thought about selling my GT because of this. I debating if I want to invest anymore money into it or just use it for a parts car. Let me know if the it was a control arms or torque boxes email me man. I am hoping my car does not have a bent frame. Taking it to a alignment shop to check it out.5.0CPA said:Boosted Fox: thanks for the info on the Global West spacers - hopefully I won't be needing them, but it is another step I'll have to get this straightened out.
Purple Pony: My pigtails are correct. As a matter of fact, I've had them in the correct way, and various incorrect ways to try to level things out and it was to no avail.
Quickstangs: exact same thing going on over here. The rearend looks like it is shifted to the passenger side - passenger tire sticks out while the driver side tire sits deep in the wheel well. The way I'm thinking is that this has to be control arms/torque boxes as the problem.
Zeus: I'll keep you posted and I will figure this out. When I park on a slope it looks like my car is about to tip over!
5.0SHO: I'm not sure about Thunderbirds, but I don't think the shock has a whole lot to do with the ride height and the orientation of the rear end to the body. I've replaced my shocks just to make sure and it didn't affect anything.
I've read up some more and everything is pointing to the UCA's/bushings in the UCA's/torque boxes.
