Well, John...
You've got a normal Sprite, then. LHD ones develop a list to the
left...theory is
over time, the Unibody structure takes a
"set" and since it is normally the driver's
side which is occupied the most, that's
the way the body can be expected to go.
The "stock" rear springs were too stiff for the car to begin with ...the
10 leaf are
worse in this respect.
You can take the car to a spring shop and
see what they can do for you. I am not
a "spring man" so I do not really know...
but they do.
Removal of leaves, recurving, whatever.
I do not think you will ever get all the
"twist" out of the body. Most of us just
accept it as "normal" for the Sprite and
Spridgets, which it is. But they MAY be
able to "correct" spring height for some
of it.
