Yes. Examine your front end parts and look for any broken components on that side. If you don't find anything broken or loose, inspect the shock/strut on the sagging side and look for signs of fluid leak or weakness as evidenced by that corner of the car moving up and down with little resistance. If that is found, replace the struts (on both sides).
