Not sure

Hello again guys, still mulling around trying to undo years of short cuts. I changed my upper arm bushings yesterday. The vehicle had a 1 inch dip to the front on the driver's side, the dip is still there, it make the old girl look lopsided. Any suggestions as to what may cause this. This is going to be a very long task as many of the sensor are not where they ought to be be.

The most likely cause of a droop would be a weaker spring on the front driver's side. That's the side that would always have a load (driver), vs the passenger side may not always have a load. You might try swapping the springs side-to-side to see if the dip moves to the passenger side.

More involved would be if parts of the frame got distorted by overloading or a hard impact in the past.
