OBS front end sag

hey guys i was wondering how many of yall have problems with your OBS trucks (f350's) sagging to one side. I think its the spring but im now sure. Ive had the body mounts replaced so i don't think its that. i don't think the frame is twisted i just know that the truck leans to the right only in the front end. Anyone?

When u say body mounts do u mean the bushings? U can get a set of bushings from energy suspension, can order them at the local parts house

I noticed my rear right bushing is compressed lower than the left when I put the flatbed on. I'm gonna try some of the poly bushings from energy suspension. The front seems pretty level, though.

cool...My dad's cc F350 dually was sagging on the passenger side rear. The "line" on the bed was about 3" below the Line on the truck.

By "line" i mean that angled trim that goes along the side of the truck.

We snatched the bushings out, and they were so demolished, in shreds!

Ck the front spring shackle, the bushings are probably shot. I have also seen the shackles crack. Look at these, they are right behind the bumper.

well i went to a spring shop and the guy and i got under the truck and found that the springs and all that are good. My bumper makes it look bad but also the right side middle and rear body mounts on the cab are collapsed so thats what is making the truck sag to that side.
