Right Rear sag??

2003 TJ with a right rear sag w/60K miles. I read through various threads suggesting to change the rear springs. I installed a 2/12" Rubicon Express suspension lift and put new factory springs in the rear. The right rear is still 3/4" lower than the left rear. Any suggestions? You may or may not be able to tell in the pic here, but of course as the owner I see it every day.

Replace the spring or get a spring spacer. Pretty common for TJ's to sag due to torque from the driveline.

This is the result of replaced springs two days ago. The lift kit also comprised of 2 1/2" spring spacers.

Sometimes in lift kits there is a left and right rear spring to help prevent sag. Are you sure you didn't mix up the springs?

My lift kit didn't come with springs. Additionally, I put new stock springs on recently that were identical.

Upon further inspection, the frame is 3/4" lower in the right rear than the left rear. The body matches this difference. The frame in the front has the left side 1/8" lower than the right. Has anyone experienced this frame twist before? Is this normal?

The Jeep is otherwise a great vehicle, but not aesthetically pleasing with the sag. The Jeep has been off road early in it's life, but I noticed this a couple of months ago and it has not been off road for the last 4 years nor has it ever been in an accident.

Right the springs will look the same but one will have just a little different coil rate than the other. Mine looked the same length until I realized that the actual coils are a little different.
