It's one of those 'mustang things.' I've heard about this, and some cars also lean (one side sitting lower than the other). I'd tear the LCA's and UCA's out and throw in some new poly bushings. This way you can inspect the parts better while they're on a bench.

Sonafab*(^%$, I knew it! I knew my car always leaned to the right (pass side). Like the owner before me had his fat a$$ wife in the car for the first 44,XXX miles of the car's life. For shame, even it out, let her drive once and awhile; give it that lowered look.

I need to fix this, it's driving me NUTS!

Mine does the same thing. It bugs the $#it out of me to look at the car and see it lean to the right. I never noticed it tell I put the 10.5's on the rear.

Glad to know it's not just me!!!! Thought my car was all jacked up for some reason. Nature of the beast.

a friend of mine was doing donuts and bent control arms so when he puts 315's you can see that one wheel sticks out more

This is something that be easily be fixed with adjustable control arms. Putting a single wheel spacer on one side or the other is not going to solve the problem. Baseline has a rear end locator bracket for 60$ that is used in conjuction with their upper CA set up.

Cool, I'll look into the rear end locator bracket and the control arms. That bracket set up actually sounds like a good idea anyway. Would probably prevent future problems as well.

Most solid axle cars are built that way guys. I've had built/owned 15 cars in my life and everyone of them have been kicked out to the passenger side by some amount. 67Elcy, 72nova, 71 Stang, 86 Monte SS etc etc. IDK why but they just are. Still check for clearence issue and of course the obvious issues in case of damage.
