So to recap , sat 3/4" lower in right front with all factory parts...
Replaced springs, shocks,sway bars, tires and wheels ( all inflated equally) yesterday and still leans the same( measuring from the floor) and you can see it with the naked eye( very obvious)
. No body mounts failing, or body collapsing where it mounts...

mine leans too. Everyone complains that TJ's lean to the passenger side a little bit. Nobody knows the true answer although there have been some theory's. I bought JKS adjustable coil over spacers and ran the passenger side out 1/4". It sits level now.

It's just Jeep swagger. They've had it since the days of the 2As and MBs. My '61 CJ5 leans about 1/2" to the right. People have replaced whole suspensions on early Jeeps and still end up with "the lean".

I have the same lean in my '05, it was there when it was stock and its still here after a 2 in body and 2 in suspension lift. I just refer to it as Jeep swag!

Google "Jeep lean"

That will tell you all you need to know.
