    The low side could be from the frame rail on that side being bent up a tad. You may try putting a small level on top of the front frame rails. Put it on each side aimed front to back, then compare. I've seen front frame rails bent up on one side from hitting curbs, etc..... Or could one of the torsion bars be weaker than the other? What about switching the torsion bars side to side? Could that be done to rule them out?

    Torsion bars are side specific and marked as such. A switch would probably result in a broken T-bar.

      Thanks for clearing that up, I've wondered about that. Where are the marks?

      I do have more investigation to do but several things need attention as the car sat for awhile. It looks really straight top and bottom with no sign of ever being hit but I’m still getting familiar with it.

      Thanks
