not sitting level

Just curious as to why my car wants to sit a good 2" lower at the rear on one side vs the other. On the driver's side the tire tread is tucked up in the fenderwell, which is good. On the passenger side the tread is below being flush with the fender lip. I just got done doing battle boxes, double adjustable upper control arms, lowers, competition engineering shocks, stock 4cyl springs. Any ideas? thanks in advance.

Worn shock? Do you have both pigtails on coil springs facing the correct way? Check them 1st.....

You'd better go back and check your work. I would think something has to be drastically wrong to be 2" off. Are the springs a matched pair? Is a control arm wedged? Did you do anything to the front that would cause such a bias?

Stick Shift, shocks don't control ride height.

Springs are matched, original to the car. All control arm bolts are still loose as to not have anything binding up during install.

Just looked, one of my pigtails moved almost 180 deg off. When it stops raining I might go move it.
