Rear body frame sits low near tire

Any idea as to what I need to fix and how much it would cost?

I believe it may be rear shocks. Thanks for any information you may provide!

What part of Texas are you in? I had to get both my rear shocks replaced and it costed a small fortune. I found out after the fact that there is a place that rebuilds them.

Shock absorbers resist movement, but they do not provide static resistance to the weight of the car. The springs do that. Springs can weaken over time, some more than others. Metallurgists call this "slip." So, you might have slip in on spring and not the other. Because of slip, springs should always be replace in pairs.
