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? :confused:

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.

I did heck on level pavement.. :poke:

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

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.

Shock shouldnt have anything to do with it. Shocks just absorb movement.

Don't blame any of that on the tank being full or the shocks blown. That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Sounds like something the chevy owners would say. It's all in the springs.

Easy man...

If you say its all in the springs.. Would you say the rears are worn? Like I said, I just installed X's in the front about 4 months ago.

Brand new? Have you tried switching sides that the springs are on, see if the sag follows?

Driver side sits low on mine. 1/2" You don't need a tape. Most people would never notice, but i see it.
