1 Inch is a lot
Brother of the Benz, georgehifi
Accident seems to stand out in diagnosing your standing height difference.
1 inch is a lot for just missing the rubber pad.
A silly question, but are the wheels and tires the same size and pressure?
It sounds as if you may have a bent link or two.
Try looking at the links for damage and make comparitive measurements between the two sides.
Where are you taking the measurement from?
Do some under chassis investigation.
You never were excluded from the group, just an old cronny mouthing off.
