Pictures of my 1974 230

On the link below I've posted some pictures from my car and the way it looks now.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Most of the before would be around the engine, the paint is original. I've tinted the windows (some people don't like that, :-), lots and lots of cleaning. I've replaced the carburetor membrane, valve adjusting and timing is next. Pretty much everything was replaced before I bought it.

Has anyone had any issues with the left rear side being lower than the right and am I the only one thinking that these car's back is to low comparing to the front?
Just my opinion.

Thank you for the comment.

Hard to tell from the photos, but you might want to check the rear springs, if things look fishy.

How do I check them?
What should I be looking for?
When I drive it looks ok to me but I might be missing something.
Thank you.

See if either one or both are physically broken.
