Unhappy Ride Height

Ok im driving last night and i notice that i hear my tires rubbing, didn't pay no mind to it cuz i thought it was my back tires because my tires are to wide, so i get to were im going and notice my car is on a slight lean i take a closer look my passenger side front tire is under the fender bout 1/2 a inch or more, and the driver side looks to be normal, I got the front of my car lowered with H&R spring and new KYB stuts (I kno bad choice for struts, I didn't know at the time i bought them), So now every time a take a left turn it rubs preety bad, i was thinking maybe it cuz i didn't lower the back yet and my car is kinda sitting on a little angle cuz my passenger back strut is bad so maybe it would cause the passenger side to be sitting a little lower but the front wasn't sitting that low before when i first lowered it, sorry for the long write up but does anyone have any ideas what it maybe, i think maybe something is wrong with the strut but im not 100% sure and i also notice that the passenger side wheel is on a angle and not the driver side

for that im sure it was was the lowered springs with a non lowered strut as kyb's are replacement struts for our cars. if you lower a our cars more then a inch on those or our factory struts it will cause them to blow out!

+1 oem and oem replacements weren't designed to be lowered, one hard bump and they will blow.

Sure, but my springs are stock, shocks are stock too. What's causing it to lean if all stock?

It's spring-sag. I currently have that problem with my RL, specifically the rear passenger side sags, causing the front driver side to be lifted, bad tire wear, and car pulls to the right. Replacing all my OEM struts/springs with full BWR coilovers
