maybe you should check it over or have a shop check it over and see whats broken or worn then go from there ..

You definitely need to check stuff out before throwing parts at it. 2" of difference is a LOT. Is it both front and rear? Or just one corner? Do you know if your chassis is still straight?

Regarding what parts to throw, that depends on your budget and how you use the car.

the whole left side is tilted front and rear so i dont think its torqued. Also if i stand on the door framor just push down on the car front rear middle i get that nice squeking sound. well i guess its off to the mechanic i go

also 2" loked at it again its more like 1". I just dont want to pay 90 bucks for diagnosis.

also the car is modified but i dont track it i just want a decent ride doesnt have to be soft but dont want bone jarring either.

I read this as "I don't know what I want".

The first question is whether more about cornering or straight-line performance. ("both" is not an acceptable answer)

The second is how important ride quality is. What you've said above is basically meaningless, as we don't know what you'd consider to be "bone jarring".

Just based on what you've said, my suggestion would be for Ford Racing C springs and some decent non-adjustable shocks (KYB GR2s or Monroe Sensatracs).

More information could certainly change that suggestion, though.

what kind of ride would the eibach pro kit and the eibach pro damper and struts provide. I just want to make sure im getting the best bang for my buck what can i do to test if the chassis is torqued myself. and if it is theres nothing i can really do to fix it right.

I don't have any personal experience with the eibachs, so I couldn't speak to their ride quality. They'll be stiffer that stock, that's for certain, and having matched shocks is a very good thing.

If you're more into cornering, I can't recommend enough that you get full-length SFCs and CC plates.

i mean if its the front and rear it shouldnt be a chassis issue right wouldnt that be the right/left rear is uneven to the other corners. my car the whole side is lower

Yeah I don't think the chassis would be tweaked if it completely leans to one side... Do the springs and struts/shocks and see what happens.

If your doors are shutting then your uni-body should be straight.
I agree

I had the same problem with my 88 hatch when I first picked it up.. I installed new kyb gr2 struts/shocks, fppr c springs, upr upper/lower moly control arms and what fixed the 1" difference in the rear was the control arms. The bushings were shot on one side in the one upper control arm.
