Control arm bushings can change ride height by 2 inches in some instances. If one side is good and the other is completely trashed then its very likely the bad side will sit an inch or more lower

Body bushing can definitely give the appearance of an uneven ride height. The way to check that is measure the frame height versus the body height on both sides and if the difference between the frame and body is the same on both sides then the body bushings are equally worn and won't be the cause for the lean.
