Question Leaning to the left

Hi everyone, I have 2012 fj cruiser with stock suspension but my car is leaning to the left more than normal know that the fuel tank and the battery is on the driver side but its obivious that something is wrong because i tried to put a rear coil spacer on the driver side but its still leaning. My car problem is similar to this car .



What other possibilities can their be other than the suspension that it causes the car to lean to the left?

Re: Leaning to the left

there is a bit of a "natural" driver's side lean, so I'm assuming its more significant ... did it happen all at once, or over time ... I'm no expert, but could be a weak rear spring ...

Re: Leaning to the left

Might be your driveway, I know depending where I park sometimes it is worse than others.

Re: Leaning to the left

If it's not the driveway try switching the springs, left and right.

I have a left leaning FJ with 6" Fabtech lift. Does anyone know of any aftermarket rear springs that would work for this situation and maybe correct the lean without having to compensate with front coilover adjustment? The coilovers and rear shocks are relatively new.

Re: Leaning to the left

The TTUE suspension with Bilstein 6112 fixes that by setting the driver's side one notch higher than the passenger side. I have that suspension and no lean here.

Re: Leaning to the left

The 10mm spacer in the rear fixed mine, if it's worse than that my guess is you've got a spring failing.
Has it had a rough life?

Re: Leaning to the left

Try one of these. I bought one years ago and it corrects the problem. It gets installed on top of the rear drivers side spring.
