Tilt to the right

My 98 Sahara rides a little low on the right.
Any suggestions?

Could be that your door and tire carrier is open putting more stress on your right side coils, could have sagging coils,.

You need to do measurements with the tailgate closed and on level surface. The rear passenger side spring will tend to sag over time due to engine torque.

Find the difference between your coil lengths by measuring upper to lower brackets, to see if it's actually the coils themselves....

If the frame was twisted, one spring would still have to be longer than the other for the body to be drooping down like that. Unless the frame was bent behind the spring.

Coil length is about 5/8" difference.
Looks like original shocks also.
