i have a 73 nova that the left rear of the car all of a sudden dropped an inch or so lower then the right side.i installed new leaf springs and it seemed to
help until i drove the car a couple times and then the left rear dropped down again.i had been planning on putting new lowering springs on the front of the car and thought since the problem could possibly be with one of the springs in the front end that i would go ahead and do it.i put the new springs on the
front and it still did not correct the problem.does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this?i would greatly appreciate anyones help.

It sounds like you are on the right track. Make sure your front springs are seated properly in the pocket, this will cause a similar condition as well.
i believe they are but,is there a way to be 100% sure other then just simply
eyeballing them?

Measure from the ground to the top of the wheel arch on each side. If you do have to take them apart be vewwy careful! Those coil springs are killers!:eek:
