The Superduty left side lean?????

I have personally known and now own a Superduty with the left hand lean.

I am exactly a half inch low left front and left rear. It really doesn't matter on fuel level and I am not the biggest dude out there.

I have an ebay 2 inch leveling kit on the front. Stock rear suspension with airbags out back.

My current plan without moving springs all over the place is to buy a 2.5" leveling kit and use the 2.5 inch block on the left front and leave the 2" on the right front.

Out back I will try to find a half inch shim to add to the spring pack via the leap spring center pin. If that is too much of a pain in the *** I will likely run 10 extra pounds in the left rear air bag.

Anyone else dealt with this? what did you do.

I hear ford spec for leaning trucks is 3/4".

well i was noticing that as well but the thing that i am coming up with and you have to look at the frame twist vid of the powerstroke and the duramax and listen to people on here is the frame is like a semis and its suppose to twist so i think that the lean is so when its under power or load it sits level, i have noticed that with the tune and ficm tune just getting on it a little will pick up the front and drop it a good bit

This compensates for road crown, many other brands have it too. Some gm trucks dog track as well for the same reason.

No, there is nothing designed into the truck to create the lean. The springs and everything left-right are identical. It is due to the fuel tank and driver being on the left side. I plan to swap my rear springs side-to-side to see if that helps, I have about 1" lean right now.

18 bucks and 30 minutes of work and she's all fixed up.

Within an 1/8th inch left to right.

If anyone needs a 2 inch or 2.5 inch aluminum spacer for their front leveling kit let me know as I now have one of each laying around.

No broken springs here, thankfully.
