I currently have a 97' Ford Ranger. I was pulling out of a parking lot the other day, trying to get out quickly b/c of other cars. I ended up turning to the left to hard, gave it too much gas, and wheel-hopped. Right after that I noticed something was wrong with the truck. I then realized that I was lower than the right side of the truck. When I got home I measured each tire to the height of the truck. The two front wheels measured 30" each and the back two were different. The back left was 1/2 an inch lower than the back right side. Talked to a few friends, they said it was probably the rear shocks. I took it to Briggs and son tires and they said that it might be the rear shocks too, they were not for sure though. Before I buy new shocks, does anybody have any other thoughts on what the problem might be?

Look at the rear spring hanger where it attachs to the frame. They rust off there and there is a kit from ford to fix it.
