Default Dumb question...why is the left side of my car lower than the right in the back???

Hi there,

I just noticed that the fender gap in the rear left side (driver side) is about 2 fingers while on the right side (where the gas lid is) is much higher, about 4 finger gap.



It's probably just my car...oh btw this is on stock suspension.

It could have cracked a coil off the spring back there.

How big of a boy are you? The front driver side could be getting more sag since more weight is up there....or something broke

The ground is even...so possibly blown struts i guess then.

Would the gas tank weigh down one side over time?

shouldn't, the only thing that's on one side and not the other is the filler neck, the gas tank is centered.

I have about roughly 100,000 miles on the car.

I actually notice a lot of GT sedans that have one side lower than the other side so I thought it was a common occurrence.
