Spring Sag? How to tell!

Well before I did my lift I do not remember any CJ Lean. Now That I ahve ran my lift I am seeing my Left rear look lower and lower. How is teh best way to tell if it is due to a bad spring/sag? I am thinking measureing and comparing to the frame?

I think the correct way is to remove it and take it to a spring shop along with the spring from the other side. I believe they do a tension test and measure flex travel.
What brand springs did you use ?

I have RE 2.5 springs. Like I said I can see a difference be tween sides and prior to lift install I never noticed a difference. The nearest Spring Shop would require a 180 mile trip.
