Car height... one side higher?

When looking at my 350 from the rear, one side looks higher than the other? I'm not going to say which side yet, just curious if any of you have noticed this on your 350's?

I thought I noticed that, but it was in a parking lot where the pavement wasn't level. I'll have to take a look at the car while in the garge. The floor there is level.

I just went out in the garage to take a look. I made sure both seats were positioned all the way down and I couldn't really see a difference.

Thx!

I'm gonna check mine again in the daylight, but yesterday, I could have sworn I'd seen about an inch difference on one side of the car.

By ride height, you mean the distance between the car and the ground, correct?

You got it. But more specifically the distance between the rear bumper and the ground...

I measured at the exhaust cutout openings and at the top of the wheel well arches. I got 1/4" lower on the left (driver's) side in both places.

Thx Bartkat, I haven't measured my car yet, but I did notice the driver's side is a bit lower. At least our cars are consistant.
