Bronco sits unlevel

Ever since I have owned my bronco, it has sat un-level. The left is higher than the right. The problem is only with the front; the back is fine. I took it to a shop, and they told me that I need to replace the coil springs and axle pivot bushings. I have replaced the coils, but not the axle bushings. Do you think that they could be the problem. Also it is worst when I park with the front downhill. It still sits uneven while I am driving though. Also when I turn left(into the low side) it feels very soft, and the body rolls into the turn. When I turn right(into high side) it is very stiff, and corners flatly. I have also taken the shocks off and in doesn’t effect anything. I will try to change the axle pivot bushings, but is there anything else that could cause the problem?

Re: Bronco sits unlevel

Any physical damage to your sway bar (if you still have one) by any chance?

Re: Bronco sits unlevel

How do your coil buckets look? Has anyone jumped your truck?

Re: Bronco sits unlevel

well first i don't have a sway bar anymore. Everything looks ok under there, so maybe the frame is bent? I guess i should also change the radius arm bushings.
