SLOPPY front end

I know that my front shocks and coils are done for and need to be replaced (probably due to my insanely rough road to my house), my drivers side cv boot is leaking, and my truck leans to the drivers side and the 2nd leaf from the bottom on that side is slightly off from the rest of the stack, and i have a shitty plastic spacer lift in the front (guy that owned truck before me). I have very uneven wearing on my tires and im trying to figure out what is causing such bad alignment, or is it all of those combined?
I plan on removing the spacer lift this week n see what that does. What do you guys think? Anyone else have crooked leafs too? Thanks

My stockers were not perfectly aligned but it's fine. The spacer will cause uneven wear if you don't get it aligned after you lift it.

sounds like you are on the right track. remove that crap lift. while your under there I would install some billstein 5100 shocks or look for a good used set of TRD billsteins. I have some that I will sell you if you are interested, they only have around 13-15k miles on them.

get the truck aligned and replace tires if needed.

PM me if you are interested in my TRD billsteins
