the body line may not nessicerably be off if it bent the shackel and and the leaf it may have just bet that one driver side back corner down the front is still bolted to the frame on the passanger side front the same as before.

So do you think I could crank my new torsion bars put an add a leaf leveling kit, put the chevy shackles to get some lift and then add a spacer puck to the rear most body mount to level that side off.

Take the box off hit the frame with a hammer then body lift just the box. If its still not level repeat these steps.

The problem with what alot of people are saying. Adjusting the front suspension has nothing at all to do with the back driver side rear end drooping. If people are suggesting to tweak a front suspension component to fix the back, I woudl like to assume they have no idea how a suspension actually works. I woudl like to reiterate the fact that I think your frame is tweaked on that back end, most likely caused by the two accidents totalling $20,000 in repairs you told us aboutl.

so i have 2 options right now first is i can suck it up and try to put a spacer on the body mount closes to that end or if you guys think it is tweaked i'll take it to a body shop to confirm that the frame is warped and then I'll go after the original body shop that told em the frame was fine. if the frame is warped they should have written the vehicle off.
