Drivers Side Higher Than Passenger Side

I just checked my car and noticed that the drivers side seems to be sitting around a little bit higher than the passenger side in the rear. Is that a blown shock or other suspension component? Does anyone else's G70 have this issue?

Shocks have nothing to do with ride height. They just dampen motion. Springs control ride height. You could have a broken spring, or maybe some other suspension component. Did you make any measurements, or are you just going by sight? Is it possible that you have a heavy body in the trunk that has shifted to that side?

I have lowering springs that i am going to install. Should i get this checked out at the dealership before i install them. The drivers side can fit 3 fingers in the wheel gap with a little bit of room but the passenger side barely fits 3.

Maybe the guy at the factory where they set the body on chassis at the plant has skinnier fingers than the guy on the other side.

Out of curiosity, I used a piece of paper and measured from the finder to the wheel so a tire difference would be less an issue. Both sides are equal. Do you have anything in the trunk?

I have no idea what the tolerance, if any, would be. Probably more accurate would be to measure from fender to ground. That way someone else can confirm if they are the same.

Make sure you're on level ground when checking it.

Just measured from ground to fender
Rear Drivers Side: 27 and 3/8 inch
Rear Passenger Side: 26 and 7/8 inch
Can anyone confirm that they have the same or different gap?
