Ride Height

While doing some work on the car I noticed I had more room to place the jack on the right side than I did the left side. I measured from the floor to the top of the wheel well and sure enough the right side was 1/2" higher. Both tires are the same size and have the same pressure, although due to a curb that jumped out the right side is newer. The left side tire has plenty of tread.

Could that big a difference be caused by more wear on the left side tire? Should I be concerned about the difference and/or adjust the suspension.

Thanks!

Rich- Personally I would have ride height and suspension alignment adjusted by an expert with a supply of camber shims. Ride height is easily adjusted with a spring compressor and ring nut wrench, but camber and toe will need to be adjusted afterwards.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
