Info on suspension sag?

My truck leans real bad on the drivers side both front and back. I can't find any answers on here after reading through hundreds of threads. I got that spreadsheet but the link for the ford TSB#04-23-06 isn't active. Thanks

Mine sits 1/2" lower on left than on right.

The reason I was told is that the motor puts so much torque on the left side every time you start the truck it wears faster than the pass side. And my 200 lb azz in the seat on that side every time does not help... The guys at 4 wheel parts came up with this.

Thanks,

That link helped. Thanks. I may have to look at changing out the springs. I have about 1 1/4" difference in ride height between left and right.

why not try some firestone airbags? They can level it out no problem

Doesn't fix the root cause of the problem. My 05 has the gangsta lean also: about 1/2" down on the driver side. It's lifted 8" and I try not to think about what it might cost to fix it.

Mine leans bad to the passenger side, too. That link looks like it will only fix the rear. I wonder if new shocks would help much, or if it would take springs and shocks, both.
