Weak springs. Buy some heavy duty versions.

Mine was squatting funny on all four corners.

Ordered some HD EPI springs and put them on. Sits fine now.

Was a relatively easy job. I used some spring compressors to help on the rear springs.

If you eventually decide to do the fronts, you do not need compressors for those, and be careful to not let the the fronts drop so that you mess up the CV boots or joints. DAMHIKT

Soft springs can do it but its more likely bushings worn in the bearing carriers and/or the a arms. Check the lower shock bushings too. A little slack in each one adds up to a lot in total. The only way to get them to last is to install grease fittings.
