Are you sure of this? I've only had my 09 Escape for a month and a half, but I already noticed the shape of the hood gives me the illusion that my driver side is lower than my passenger side. I would imagine that if it were truly leaning, you would feel it when trying to drive a straight line.
...and btw, welcome to the site

An inexpensive way to stiffen the ride is to purchase coil spring stabilizers. Both the KYB and Monroes get stiffer as the strut gets more up and down motion while driving. Also check the sway bar bushings, I've read they tend to go out on some of the "E's" fairly quick. a decent up grade is to order a Moog(sp) sway bar.
Last option that is fairly $$ is to order a bolt on rear suspension from Jants Engineering. It allows you to install a set of Rancho RS 9000 adjustable rear shocks. Keep in mind the softest setting is stiff. If you do go the Rancho route, I highly recommend you add the 1 or 2 coil spring stabilizers to the front coils only. start with 1 in each coil and if you want more stiffness add the other stabilizer..Good luck and I love my '08.
