This is almost certainly a matter of uneven spring wear (not common, but it
happens). Shocks have NOTHING to do with it (they affect only MOVEMENT, not
POSITION). Check that you've got the same size of wheel/tire on all corners
(swap them if you're ultimately in doubt), then replace your springs with
     Even the new ones CAN vary somewhat.

My wifes 63 Monza 900 pg is listing to one side.  Filled the tires to the
same pressure.  And one side is 2 inches lower than the other.

What is the most likely problem.  Or can I only tell if I take stuff apart.

The shocks seem to bounce the correct amount.  No apparent oil leakage.

The shocks and springs are of unknown age.  I know we have not replaced
them in the 6 years we have owned the vehicle.

Thanks to all.
