Default Suspension uneven

So I realized today that my rear was sitting real low and my front real high but it was on a relatively flat surface, is this normal ?

A photo would help. The car will try and level itself on an uneven surface to a certain extent. I have noticed that with my car when it's parked on uneven pavement.

However what you describe does not seem to be normal. Did you try driving around for a bit to see if the car leveled itself?

Sounds suspicious, but these air suspension systems are always having little issues. They can usually be reset I think. Try driving the car for a bit and maybe make some changes to the ride setting to see if that will get things back to normal

After driving it around it seemed to even out but it was still super weird

If we are talking about factory air suspension, there are some threads about this in the faq sticky thread. Just get to a flat area and put car in height high mode and then drive a little..come back and turn off height high and see if that helps...parking on uneven surfaces and leaving car on will cause the suspension to really figure out wth is going on

My car always leans to the left but when I drive or press height high it goes away and levels out
