This is far but... A friend of mine (truly, not me) did the Shelby lowering and assembled other upper arm to new lowered holes and another to original holes.

HeHe ... was just thinking about that post ... a doofus award winner for sure /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

On the original post, it's most likely just shot springs ... but you may want to check that you only have one set of upper A-arm holes just for fun *LOL*.

Check your motor mounts. The drivers side could have split and sagged.

The springs are most likely the culprit. Mine are OLD, and with recent mods to the motor and adding all the braces (export, M/C), I put the car back down to find that it is leaning a bit too. 620 lb. (1" drop) springs are on the way!

SWMBO's '65 vert was listing to the drivers side as well. Changed the springs and it's flying straight and level again!
