w201- leaning
hi everyone

so i have 1989 190d with om605 in it, and i noticed that my drivers side is lower than other side. i have checked for broken springs, but they seem to be still good, so what could be the problem, control arms dont have cracks, can they be bent? Any ideas what could it be? i getting irritated by it and want to make it flat. i have noticed it before but now seems to be a bit more than it was.
front end refreshed with new parts

spring cups?
bent control arms?

Spring pads come in varying thicknesses to make small height adjustments.

Have a look at the LCA bushings, also unhook the sway bar(s).

Maybe get a spring compressor and swap the fronts round and see if that affects it to rule out springs
