Jeep rear sits unlevel

I picked up a 99 wrangler and noticed that the right rear sits about 1/2 lower than the left rear side. It has the 2 inch budget lift with new shocks, I am wondering if the right rear spring is just weak and needs to be replaced? There is currently no spare mounted so there is no added weight to the rear.

I hope it's not a twisted frame.

id keep my eyes open for a set of stock springs off a rubi or sport (can be had cheap when someone upgrades) and see if that helps..

Chances are its just sagged

How does the front look. If the frame is strait, I would think the opposite corner of the front should sit a little higher due to the sagging in the rear. But I don't know for sure. I would guess that the spring is just wore out. I know some companies (OME) sell springs with different rates for each corner due to sagging cause from engine torque (I believe).
