belltech makes a coil spacer that corrects it somewhat. if you bought belltech springs and you have a v6, that is part of what is causing it b/c they use spring rates that are a little too low for v6s. better springs you will only see about 1/8in difference

it has the 2.5 motor, would the sway bar link trick fix it???

It could, but it would be alot easier to just put the spacer in.

I have the same problem with my 98 s10. it leans to the driver side which is bad bc i am constantly rubbing the wheel wells. A spacer would be the way to go once you make sure your coils are seated properly and you shocks are still good.

well i measured the front and the rear and the front sits perfectly leval but the rear pass side sits 1-1/2 inches higher, i still have the stock shocks in it, could it be that one of them is weaker then the other???

try switching the springs from side to side. that will answer that question.

i would highly doubt that it would be 1.5in off though. you probably have another issue where something isn't seated correctly or something is keeping the spring from moving correctly.

also make sure there is nothing the spring would hit on the framerail above the rear shackle like where a trailer hitch might have been installed

no, unless you have load assist shocks
