Passenger rear leaning lower than other three corners.

I was wondering if anyone knew why my car is like that. I have HR springs and the only problem is that the passenger rear tends to sit about half to one inch lower than the other side. I replaced new shocks about a month ago but this problem has been there for quite awhile. What should I do should I put a thicker pad to make it better or could it be something like the control arm?

Spring height & pressure = ride height! If one corner is too low then that spring is shorter or weaker. If you can, install a spring pad that is 2 sizes thicker than the one in there now.
