Jeep still leaning after new springs installed...

Had my RE 3.5 springs for a few years and eventually noticed the Jeep was visibly leaning towards the passenger side. Figured this was common and due to the torque roll of the engine. However, just swapped in a new set of the same springs and the stance hasn't changed. Now I'm wondering if there's another factor that could contribute to the Jeep sitting higher on the driver side. Any ideas?

If you have adjustable CAs or adjustable trackbar or non adjustable not relocated could cause binding making one side sit lower.
Remove one of the UCAs from the axle and see if it straightens up...

Interesting. I've got fixed lowers and adjustable uppers plus adjustable track bars front and rear.

You need to put "ridiculous" in the title and call out the spring company to get any traction with this kind of problem.
