Yeah may be a broken spring or just a hung suspension. Jack and loosen the shackle mounts on all four springs. Drive around the block and cycle the suspension poser shots, curbs, big rocks whatever. Retorque to 45 ft/lbs and see if it klevels out. This all after you do a good look see to find if in fact something is really broken on the suspension.

idunno.... but go get an inspection before you get a ticket (red stickers were 2012 expiration)

Also, I really like that pearly yellow/gold color... do you know what it is?

At first I thought it looked like a shackle reversal, but you may be right!

Yeah, you can see the shackle for the left side of the Jeep. Looks like both are flipped. He needs a new pair of front springs and some aftermarket anti-flip shackles. Long Island huh, you been catching some air on the dunes?

I bet $0.01 the TrackBar is the lean issue. And inverted shackles

All about that unibody life.

I think so. Those look like the stock shackles and bolts.

If that's the case, I'll be surprised if the OP still has teeth. I figured they'd be shaken out of his head when driving around.

Like Don said, new springs and anti-wrap shackles...and ditch the front track bar.
