Question QL - Rear end sits slightly awkward...normal??

Ok...so I recently noticed that (thru all 5 levels of QL) the rear-end of our JGC* sits, depending on how you want to view it, either 1" higher in Right-Rear or 1" lower in Left-Rear compared to opposite side respectively, measured top of tire to fender flare and it's noticeable visually from behind...however, the front end sits perfectly level (I measured at each corner at each ride height for comparison)...is this strange stance in rear end normal, or should I be concerned enough to schedule a "check-up"??...just curious.

Otherwise...aside from some "creaking & squeaking" over speed-bumps, etc...it performs & functions perfectly well, with no issues.

*(You can get the Jeep "specs" from my Sig below)

Any ideas?

TIA

P.S. - Weather has regularly been in the mid-60's to low-70's here and Jeep is garaged at night.

Re: QL - Rear end sits slightly awkward...normal??

If it is anyting like australia, the car is set to the camper of the road which is normally about 3 degrees. the left side is slightly lower that the right so when the car is on the road you are not sitting on an angle. the camper on the road is to help with water run off when it rains.
Hope this helps

Re: QL - Rear end sits slightly awkward...normal??

I've never noticed any such "camber". Mine sits level right to left both front and back when sitting on level ground.
The wheel height may differ from side to side if I'm parked on uneven ground, as QL tries to level the Jeep.

Check the level on a perfectly level surface and see if one corner is still higher. If it is about the same all the way around then the system is working normally.
