97 TJ lower in passenger rear by 1/2 or so!

I've always suspected the passenger side rear was a bit low, did a bunch of measuring this evening and sure enough it is. Depending where I measure its 1/2 to 3/4 lower than drivers side.

Is this common? Just tired or bent coil?

RC 4" lift kit from previous owner.

Could be bent sway bar or link, cheaper fix than springs or control arms.

That's common, it happened to both of my TJs. It's caused by engine torque which ends up at the passenger side rear spring, fatiguing it. About the only fixes include a new spring or a spring spacer

And precisely why higher-end SL kits provide taller springs on driver-front and passenger-rear.

I'll order a new set of rear coils I guess.
