what would cause your vehicle to lean towards one side? i noticed my car kinda leans lower on the right/passenger side. sometimes its more noticable than others. tires are all newer and not flat, etc.

Loc: I can see Detroit from here!
Springs can sometimes wear unevenly and sag more on one side than the other. My car sits a little lower on the back drivers side than on the pass side. Could also be a broken spring, good idea to check to be sure its not. Also if you have air suspension(i see '03 P71 in your sig, so I'm assuming you don't), one side could leak more than the other.

My car has adjustable ride height, based on how much gas is in the tank . If the tank is full the back sits low, if its empty, it sits high. I'm thinking I need springs sometime soon.

i do notice that when im driving, if i force the car to lean to the drivers side hard, it dont seem as uneven. i dont hear anything creaking or snapping etc like something is actually broken.

just in your driveway or anywhere?
My driveway/carport is uneven but not all that much to the naked eye however it does make it appear that the right front is lower.

I could use new front springs after 150 thou but I believe it's actaully fairly even from left to right

If a swaybar endlink is broken or badly bent it could make it lean a little (to one side)...

Only if the shock tube is crushed, pinning its piston, or if the shaft is bent.
