Weird, new springs on, same ol' lean. Though it wasn't a total waste. The new springs do ride a bit softer. Ended up putting in a 1" spacer on the passenger side, and now it's within aobut 1/2" of even.

I even tried loosening and lubing the LCA, thinking there might be some binding. It sure seems like the passenger side is "softer" with either spring than the driver side. Took sway bars and shocks out of the equation, so it can't be those either. Weird.

Stop listening to right leaning talk radio. Stick with NPR, 'fore long it not only will lean left, but turn left if you let go of the wheel.

The one that came off the right side was about 3/4 of an inch shorter. IDK it fixed my issue but from what I've seen and heard this is a common issue with the XJ's? Be sure to put the sping in the "spring lock" on the axle and if need be you can get a 3/4 or 1/2 inch coil spring isolator to make up for the lean...
