Question

Just noticed that my car has a slight lean towards the left when viewed form behind. Last week I did-up the whole front end (polykit, arms & shocks), so it must be from the rear, right??? Gonna install new springs anyhow... should that take care of it?

Did you allign the front springs right in the lower control arms and the upper spring perches?

The last pigtail of the front springs needs to be in between the 2 holes in te pocket in the LCA, and the top needs to be completely over the upper perch.

Mine does this too. And everything is stock on the suspension, and the springs have never been out on the front.

You may be right. Well, the shop that worked on it I know for years, all they do is suspension & brakes. They contract for NYPD & transit, so they've done our cars many times but what you're saying sounds right and I'm gonna gring it back this week to see whats the deal. I want to update the springs anyway y'know. More importantly I like to have an idea of what may be the issue in advance before I hear it from a shop, so I appreciate the post Mike.

I didn't even notice

It might help if you actually look in the spring pocket before you bring the car to the shop, that way you can actually say "the spring isn't indexed correctly in the lower control arm" or if it is, then you can say "why is my car crooked?".
