Default Irregular ride height

Hey guys kind of wondering why my max looks lower in the back then it does on the front. Nothing serious in the trunk. (Couple twelves) I've looked at other stock suspension maxes and noticed the same thing. What are my options here? I think it looks silly.

All 6th gens come looking like that. It's just how the stock suspension is for some reason. If you are looking on getting rid of those wheel gaps, you will have to look into lowering the car using springs, coilovers, etc... here's a link with more info Should I Lower My 6thgen

Thanks for the link. It seems to have mixed suggestions. I think I may have to just deal with it because the roads here in Montana are not the smoothest. I just decreased the rim size and increased the tire height with some run flats. Overall performance and comfort seem to be way better then the stock 18" rims.

No problem. I guess it just comes down to personal preference and if someone is able to lower their car.

The fenders curve vs quarter panel curve are also very different. That plays into the appearance as well.
