1997 SC2
Dizzy leaning sc2 97

Hello all,
Now I know I'm not 800 lbs, but my sc2 is leaning to the driver side like I just ate everybody's dinner on thanksgiving in one night. BUT, this is the lowdown of what the history is of when I noticed it and what is currently done.

When I bought the car it did not lean to either side( atleast I didn't notice it when I bought it). When I got an alignment done I did notice it lean a tiny bit but not too bad. Over time it seemed to get worse but not so bad that it looked detrimental to the car or rub the tires on the wheelwells and it eventually stopped going down. So I thought I was just a bad strut. I replaced all the struts at once with new springs and mounts. When I went to get it aligned it was still leaning but a little worse now. There is a difference of the width of your ring finger on each side between the tire and the fender and it varies a tiny bit each time I take it out( mm or so, just barely noticeable). The tires are even on both sides and are filled with air.

My question is what could cause this and how do I check and fix it, or can it be fixed by a shop( body or mechanic). I love this car and have a bit into it already so if it can be fixed then I will have it done so that time and money aren't wasted. The only things I can think that would still cause this is a twisted body( boy I hope not), a bad strut tower, or possibly the bushings and/or the rear suspension cradle.

BTW, its noticeable in the rear and the front is almost dead even. I've only hit one nasty bump and I still have wheel bearings that I have to do. The strut and spring combo are kyb and h&r 1.3 - 1.5 inch drop.

Any help is always appericated. Thanks.
