    Newbie Still - Suspension Issue

    Hello all...

    I have noticed this issue with my 2004 Escalade. I am hoping it is an easy fix, maybe a reset of some sort. My issue is this:

    When the car is running or stopped I notice, if im looking at the car from the front, that one side is noticable higher than the other, as if the suspension is higher on one side than the other. The driver side in noticably higher than the passanger side. Just so that I didnt think I was imagining this, on a flat surface I placed a level on the hood, and sure enough my car does not sit flat. Any ideas what this could be?

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Look and see if you have a leak or hole in your rear air shocks.

    GM trucks are notorious for this. Its completely normal to be off by as much as 1.5" This is known as the "chevy lean" - google it!

    Googled "Chevy Lean" and this picture below (about the fourth entry down) is exactly what my Caddie looks like, is there a fix for this "lean"??
