    So I have been noticing lately that it is leaning left pretty badly. Doesnt seem to affect performance, but it looks bad. Any advise as to what may be causing it? I just changed all the shocks/struts a couple weeks ago (i thought that was the issue) but it didnt fix it. It does it with both a full and empty gas tank...Could it be a spring/leaf issue, either front or rear (truck also has 3" lift)? it is roughly 1" lower than the right side, when measured from tire to top of wheel well. Any advise is appreciated...I dont think its me...im not that heavy! :)

    you can check spring pressure for the fronts. but its most likely going to be your leaf pack on the read. do a AAL or check out those "leaf spring helpers" or whatever.
