firebird sits uneven in the rear HELP

Well i know there are some threads about that some thirdgens are lower or higher at one side but i didn't find a solution yet
my firebird is in the rear right about an inch too high ,however at the front they are the same
i pull out the springs in the front and the back (they have the correct length and are not broken ) replaces the A arm bushings, balljoints ,struts and shocks but still sits uneven
the correct spring isolators are still in place and the springs are installed correctly
i dont think that my car is twisted like some in the forum say at other cars that have this
can this cause a bad sway or track bar ?
im glad for any help


the left site seems to be alright

right side only in the rear is way to high

Re: firebird sits uneven in the rear HELP

Swap the rear springs and see if the problem changes sides. This might tell you if one the spring has a different compressed height than the other. Springs don't lose spring rate but they do take a set and change compressed height over time.
