left front side of car is much lower than the right side

Asked by Feb 07, 2017 at 07:39 AM about the 1998 Toyota Corolla LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently noticed the front left side of my corolla 98 is much lower than the right side. It's so obvious that there's a huge gap between the right thigh and fender. This gives the car a very awkward and unattractive look

The front struts need to be replaced. It is recommended to replace both sides. The spring in the strut on the left side must be broken.

I did replace both front and rear struts but that still did not resolve the problem

When you replaced the struts, was it level at that time?

The struts were replaced after I noticed the problem but after replacement, it was still the same

The front struts are what hold up the car. Same size tires on the front? Or is the body rusting out bad. Check the strut towers to see if you notice anything, They do make repair kits for strut towers.

I'll check for rust and the strut towers too but tires are OK. Thanks
