I would ditch the 3 leaf and get the correct leafs.
My rears are Hotchkis 2” drop springs. It came as a kit with bushings drop links etc.
Maybe you need to loosen the front and rear shackle mounting points while the weight is on the ground then tighten the bolts.
Also, check the front leaf pockets to see if they are in good shape. Mine had one bent and it made the car crooked a little.
If the body mounts are shot on the drivers side, it would cause exactly what you have going on here. If they are stock, time to replace them anyway.
Your drivers side drop link on the rear sway bar appears to have been repaired at one time. I'd double-check that they are both the exact same length -
Thanks. I will look into this. The passenger side drop link is an aftermarket, and your right about the drivers side. Maybe your on to something.
Not that I think it is causing your problem but it looks like you also have two drivers side links. That’s why your passenger side link has the single attaching bolt at the bar to the rear instead of the front.
I had this problem too after installing a full Hotchkis kit with shocks on my 81. Rear was exactly 1/2" lower than the front. Ended up taking the rear leaf hangers off and using them as a template making new ones with the bolt holes spaced apart a 1/2" more. Reinstalled and the car was perfectly level.
