Bed sits crooked??

I've noticed my truck along with some others of the same generation sit crooked when you look at the truck from the rear. Anyone else have this problem?

The bed being out of alignment is the symptom; the cause being a sagging leaf spring. Usually it's ths drivers side, as that is where the fuel tank is located, and most trucks usually have a driver

Ford has a TSB on this. Essentially they say that unless the sag is more than one inch side to side, you dont get a new leaf spring pack. Instead they offer shims of various thickness to correct the problem
