I think it might be series landrovers which lean without drivers in. I don't have a 404 anymore to check, but I didn't have a spare under the bed and I can't recall a lean.

I don't think the lean is Built in to compensate for the driver and the spare. The new springs
That you installed- were they labeled front / rear, or were the specific corners spelled out ?
If the former, then the lean isn't due to the springs, I'd say.
The radio boxes are heavy, and the ones I've seen sat level. I think something might be bent.

Something is bent or 1 tire is flat
LR even Defenders and Disco's had the DS springs longer (when I did an OME lift with new springs I talked the shop into sending me all driver side springs so they were all the same length)
You need a long straight edge and level or a string level
I would start low (bottom of rims or bottom of portals) and then move up point by point until you find where it is level then not level

Leaning 404

I will do that. Thanks all for the suggestions. Will a shop be able to straighten out a 404 frame?
