How do I level my front Concrete Steps?

Hi all,
We recently bought a house in an 8 year old development. The front step (Landing, +1 Step) are made of one solid piece of concrete. The builders did not put proper footing in and it has settled into place with the front edge, on the door opening side, sinking probably 2" lower than the back corner. You can just about feel it shift when you step on it.

I'd like to level it back out and get some footing under it so it doesn't shift anymore. What do you think is the best course of action?

Look in the Yellow pages under concrete contractors and look for someone with "mudjackers" or "concrete levelling" in their name. These companies specialize in exactly what you are describing. It takes some very specialized equipment that only they have. This is one of those things that's not a DIY project unless you want to tear it all out and replace it with fresh concrete yourself.
