Well, my car's lowered and sits level.
I never noticed any lean before the mod either.
I have the feeling though, that if you drop it, it will correct that problem. The lowering kits are tougher and don't give as much.

It is the tanks I think, because only one fills as needed, and will spill to the second when full enough.
Then explain how it spills back to the fuel pump/pick-up side?

Hmm. Another genius post. The fuel tank is not on the left side. It's in the middle and the fuel equalizes between both sides. loctite boy.

If Im correct... Our cars lean towardsdriver side based on the amount of gas. Full tank means biggest towards driver side. Empty tank evens out with left side.

Keep in mind "lean" isnt the most accurate word. I think "sway" is the best word.

In other words with a full tank of gas the car will sway towards the right and you can basically see more of the passenger side tire, from the top. Best way to describe it...
I wondered if someone would call this guy on his knowledge after
the locktite on the drain plug trick.

I wouln't exactly call it knowledge. BS is more like accurate. Another teenager that seemingly knows all, can't wait till he gets older and more stupider like some of us older guys.
