Front Sag Cause?

I have a stock 2001 with 75K miles and it appears the front passenger side sits somewhat lower. Is it common for the shocks to be worn at these miles or should I consider some other cause? Also, I don't consider myself mechanically inclined, and on top of that I'm somewhat physically limited due to my arthritis. Would it make sense to take it to a Jeep Stealer or could most basic repair places handle it?

Thanks,
Jay

Hmmm sounds like a worn out spring. The shocks do not support the vehicle in any way. How do the spring mounts and the rubber spacer above the spring look? Are these original springs? I know TJ's have a typical sag in the right rear due to torque from the driveline. I would suspect a weak spring.

Maybe it is the rear its hard to tell for sure. If its the rear do I need be concerned

No. It's just typical spring sag from driveline torque. If it is not causing any drivability concerns, it's just an annoyance because your jeep sags to one side. However I would still give it a good look over especially if it just all of a sudden started to sag. If you're not entirely comfortable with it take it to your trusted mechanic for a once over.
