Doug,
Am I reading this as your leveling is not consistent under both wheels, that your rear is is elevated more than your front wheels? Why not use the tongue jack to level front to rear vs suspension? Not sure if that may be harmful to your torsion over time?

We have saved ourselves a lot of trouble --- not referring to a driveway --- by moving the Escape forward and back several times to get the bubble moved into better position. Often cannot tell just looking at the space that a few feet this way or that makes a big difference.

I have a slope both left-right and forward back. Consider my leveling job to be 2-stage...

I use a single block under each rear wheel to get the front-back closer to level (with final leveling done with the jack), plus I use two blocks under each right wheel to get side-to-side leveling. Doing both of these things should be fine on the suspension, since front-back and side-side are each done evenly.

The first time I parked it here, I didn't do the front-back leveling with blocks. I just used the jack. What I found was that I had to lower the jack enough that I was worried about putting too much stress on the front axle. When I checked the wheel lugnuts, I found that I had taken so much weight off the rear wheels that I could spin them when torquing the lugnuts.
