Lift Woes

:rain:Just installed a ProComp 6.5" lift on my '02 F350 this past weekend... big mistake! I should have paid better attention to the complaints I read on the net before ordering the kit. THE TRUCK LEANS 2" TO THE RIGHT SIDE (front & rear)!!! Anyone else have this problem?

What is a "PRO" lift shop going to do other than loosen the shackles and re-tighten them to ensure they're not binding?

I checked the springs before install, the fronts were identical length / bend and so were the rear. Tried loosening the shackles then jacking and dropping the truck in attempts to level the truck before retightening them. I'm at a loss???

They probably out sourced the springs from a 3rd world country!

guys experienced with lifts.. you would be surprised i dont know. i hand front end problems.. i dont know. I put my lift on myself and i need a little tweak in the front end.. i couldnt get the wobble out of the front. they helped me out for cheap. maybe take some weight off the vehicles right side and let it unload the weight onto the left side springs... undo the rear add a leaf maybe and redo it so the weight sets down on the left and then re tourque..... just trying to help man

Thanks for the suggestions.... I'm just a little ticked about the whole thing. Ballast might be the trick do you think a bigger turbo would weigh enough! LOL
