02 f350 bed question!!!

Hey guys ive noticed the the bed on my 02 f350 drw sits maybe 1/2inch to an inch higher on pass side,, bed was taken off while at bodyshop so could it be on wrong or are there some type of bushings/rubbers the bed sits on that could be bad or not sitting on correctly?? Bothers the hell out of me but not sure how to go anout it, any type of feedback would be great!!!

I'd say go take a look underneath but yours sits probably a little lower to do so. But there's maybe something between the bed and the frame rails. There shouldn't. I took my bed off very recently and saw nothing. Grab a buddy for all four corners and lift it off the rails. With your dually I'm sure there are eight (8) bolts holding it down to the frame. I had to shimmy the bed off myself and four guys to put it back on.

I just went to fords parts site and saw only shims in MILLIMETERS (1.0mm, 1.5mm) at the two most front bolts at the cab only. The rest do not get any.

Did you measure it before the bed was removed?

My bed sits a little higher on the passenger side too, but only about 3/8".
