1973 Scout II Project

Hey guys i just picked up a 1973 Scout II, I'm not sure what type of lift it has but it is SOA with a what seems to be 3inch body lift clearing 38x13r16.5 Bogger Dana 60F&R 4.10 gears. But my question is it seems that the body is slightly tilting to the drivers side, could this be the shocks gonig out? or the springs going out?
let me know what you think.

you went through this too huh?

unless you fix it immedietly, the scout will keep leaning until the center of gravity is greater than the line of the equator, then it will not stop rotating on an imaginary axis until you spray it with 86 bajillion cans of degreaser (ok, i'm tired )

Well i'm guessing your scout has normal lean and it needs a soa spacer to make it level on the right rear! How bout using the search button ans not sounding like such a dumb fuck???
