driver's side lower

the driver's side of my 03S is about 1/2 inch lower than the passenger side. What is the probable problem? Is this a warranty issue? tire psi is correct.

How long have you owned this car? Possibly the prior owner was tracking the car, and had this specific set-up for racing.

I'd find an independent shop that does alignments, and have them check it out. You might have to have them do what's called a Corner Balance, which tweaks the suspension so that weight is evenly distributed between the wheels.

It's possible someone DID set it up with a little bit of a left lean, for track duty.

A good shop can balance it perfectly, and could even do so to compensate for your weight in the driver's seat.
