only if it stays that way ... try your little experiment at different places and conditions.

well you would think that they are working fine if you were parked on un even ground. after all your suspension is designed to make the cabin level and have a smooth ride.

Its probably your GAS TANK, im not sure if celica tanks are on the left or centered. if they're left, whenever you have the gas is filled up it can look uneven. spineyes happens all the time with my cousins lowered truck.

Hotchkis springs do that to your car's stance. I believe the hotchkis springs make the back a little lower than the front to help with weight distribution towards the back.

i dont think thats the problem cause he said the difference was from the front left and the front right wheels not front to back. simply its tilting to the side not to back

clearly your car is on the verge of engine explosion, the fact that it did it at one location and not another shows the severity of the situation. DUCK AND COVER! thumbsup I'd prolly have done the same thing
