Truck Lean

Fellas,

I have done new springs (X codes), new ball joints, energy suspension sway bar bushings..

I can't figure out why my truck sits 5/8" lower on the drivers side.

My buddy has damn near the same truck as me except V10 and his is off by maybe half of that...

Any suggestions?

I can tell you the tire pressures are the same. Not sure about the frame? Do our frames get tweaked easy?

Driver Front: 41 1/8"
Pass Front: 41 5/8"

Driver Rear: 40"
Pass Rear: 41 1/4"

And the reason for the front being higher is I just did front shackles today and this really made the "gangster lean" stand out.

Re: Truck Lean

Re: Truck Lean

I did heck on level pavement..

And actually the fuel light is on, which means when its full, this should be worse

I have heard that ford makes a shim kit to correct this problem.. Maybe I'll look into it?

Also I know my driver front shock is pretty much shot. But I doubt this would have anything to do with height. Correct me if I'm wrong.
