staircase level


my staircase slopes to the left. When set on the stair treads I have to lift the level up about 3/4 of an inch for it to be level. How can I raise this? What I see right now is the stringer is nailed into the studs on he way up he case. I was thinking about cutting those nails, jacking that stringer up to level and renailing into the studs. Is this the way to go?
Walls on the side and under the stairs are removed. There is total access.

Sounds like a basement set? Measure all the risers and treads, from side to side. The very bottom riser or the very top riser may be off. OR, the carpenter traced each stringer and compounded the errors.
Be safe, Gary

Is it out of level the same amount on the top step and the bottom? Is the floor out of level the same amount where the stair ends top and/or bottom?
