Car low on one side.

Hey guys, I have a friend that have a 325i sports wagon, he is on standard suspension, but for some reason his height on the right rear is lower than the left rear, we placed brand new shocks on the car, then we interchanged the two springs but the car is still low on the right side, what else can its be that is causing this problem?

The design. All our cars are lower on the right than left so that when we sit in it to drive, it's level...or close to.

If you're way off, then might be something...otherwise, a 1/2" or so...that's the way it's supposed to be.
