Is it sway bar bushing? For the clank anyway, can you feel it in your foot when the front tires are unlevel?

Most trucks lean on the driver side... I don't know why?

if not sway bar bushing check track arm bracket bolts and main bolts or it could be leaf spring popping. as far as the lean don't know it's kinda like on the 05 trucks the driver side tire sticks out farther than the other side atleast all the ones I have looked at. There was a TSB one time about the driver side lean but think it was for the back end.

Did you install an adjustable track bar? I can't find one for mine and I'm pretty sure that my track bar is too tight and making the driver's side of my truck sit a little lower than the passenger side

Fabtech makes one and so does Sky Manufacturing Im not totally sure but for it to fit an early 99 I think you just have to drill out the hole size in the bracket I think thats the only differance besides the diameter of the actual rod. Im sure if you gave one of them a call they could help ya. Im sure it's possible with all the early 99's runnin around lifted.

The wheels started pitting and the caps wouldn't fit them so I sent them back. I sold the tires to a member on here
