Front lower than Rear

After a recent collision, my TJ seems to be lower in front than the rear. I[ don't know much about the suspension. Should I be looking to replace some parts.

Inspect your front coil springs and post pictures of the results.

You said there was a collision. Was the jeep repaired by a body shop? If so, does it possibly either have a budget or 2" springs in back, and the shop replaced front springs with stock?

If not, take a couple of pics of your front lower control arms from the side that includes both the axle and frame ends.

Where did the jeep get hit?

They don't have anything to do with the height, but you also need new jounce bumpers in the front.

Ok I am a body man by trade. I would like to know how the collision happened and where it got hit. did they have to any frame repair if so where. If you have photos of the vehicle before repairs that would be great. We can figure what needs to be repaired

I have attached picture after they pulled the car into the middle of the roads. You will see the damage to the front passenger side wing etc., and that wheel turned out about 30 degrees.
The body shop had the wrangler for about 6 weeks, it is a long way from where I live. I have no idea what they did or did not repair.

Check to see if the rear springs happen to have a 2" spacer on top of the springs. It could be the Body Shop did not put the 2" spacers back on in the front.
