Truck leans to one side

So, I've been looking at my truck for the past two days and I've noticed that it leans toward the passenger side.. this really irritates me. a lot. I have a 4" pro comp lift on it...... what could be causing this!?!?!? I want to fix it.. it's all I can think about when I'm driving, i just stare at it and get more and more frustrated. HELP!

Measure the cab bushings to see if they need to be replaced.

mine's the same way...i took it to a suspension place and had the frame checked for twist and suspension sag. The guy and i concluded it was the rear two cab body mounts. so give them a try and see...plus our trucks are notorious for having a tweeked bumper...and that will make it look worse.
