4" lift uneven from side to side

I've got a 2004 F350 ext. cab short bed with a 4" skyjacker lift kit that sits uneven from side to side. I didn't measure it before putting the lift on, which I should have, but now the passangers side sits an 1in higher than the drivers side. I never noticed it before I put the lift on, but now from the rear you can tell the pass. side is higher. Is this normal? I heard some trucks are uneven from the factory, but you don't really recognize it. Is there anything I can do to even it out or is that just the way it will sit? Thanks in advance.

Drive it alittle bit to move everything around. Make sure you are on flat ground. My F-150 is off my 1 - 1 and 1/2 inchs on the passenger side.

I read a few post like yours and you are not the only one out there. It seems to be normal. Maybe because of the fuel tank.

I have a 4" skyjacker (blocks rear) and it sits DEAD LEVEL. Usually when you have leafs all around it's prone to un-eveness. Which is what I think is happening with you... Leafs on all 4 corners. My rock crawler did the same thing. it will change from time to time which way it leans. the Coil front end really helped out with leaning issues. Coils are much more precise. Don't forget... the more height.. the more noticable/worse the lean is!

I just put 2.5" leveling spacers below my coils.

measured wheelwells b-4 and they were 3/4'' off

same after kit installed.

Cant see it standing back, or driving by.
