Truck Lower on Left?

My truck is leaning LEFT. Front and rear.
Had all front and rear leaf springs replaced with OEM at dealer.
First rear, still leaning, then front, almost good($100 deductable each time,
mind you).
It seemed straight for awhile, but 4 months later now it's lower again.
Lower by 7/8-1".
Didn't haul anything since since then.
It's not much, but I just don't like the looks of it.
Anybody else got a ****-eyed rig?
What do you think the reason is?
(BTW, I only weigh 200, so no.)

Put a 1" block between the axle and spring. Or you could get some add-a-leafs that might bring it back. You could also get some aftermarket springs. When you look at my truck it looks like it sittin sideways but its the front bumper that is crooked and im just to lazy to realign it cus of the spacers it gets crooked after the first big bump I hit anyway.

Mine is the same way. About 3/4" lower on the left side then the right on the rear. The front is almost as bad but not quite. I measured from my leaf spring bolt (on the rear) to the ground and found the difference was there. I then jacked the frame up in the rear to level it and it got the front within 1/8", left to right. Why the new springs wouldn't have fixed it, I don't know. Unless Ford got a hold of some bad springs.

Still trying to figure this one out.
Guess I'll just have to move my wallet from my right back pocket to the left one to even "me" out!
