Give us some info on spring and shock set up and what brand of shock. I had a guy that would not trade me for some shocks because the were pro's. He said they would go away during a race. Also what type of suspention your using. Im sure someone on here can help.

Have you put some sort of limitor straps on the rear end to keep from loosing race springs? have seen a couple of cars pull the left front when the straps tighten up.

Your shock is likely limiting the left front, can you lower the top mount.

Or is it lifting when your upper a arm bottoms on the frame?

I run bilstein shocks all around. And my left front comes off the ground just a bit, and I love driving the car. It is the fastest it has ever been, and drives great. So far this season sitting in 6th in points with this setup

check the suspension,you have a bind in a hard part,i.e.,a-frame,i'm thinking a bound up bushing in the left a-frame .you said you just started the year?did the car set in the same spot all winter-spring?check all your bushings.switch your shocks side to side.also check your suspension travel(tie wraps on the shock shaft work good).just a couple of ideas.
