Truck sits crooked!

I put on 2.5 level kit and the drviers side sags/sits lower by about an inch. What did I do wrong? Gonna put her on the hoist and check the springs maybe swap sides.

Did you get the coil to seat properly?

Go about 40mph down a dirt road, it should straighten out.

What were your measurements BEFORE you did the lift...the measurement from the center of the hub to the top point on the wheel well? If there was already a difference between the sides, you might have added additional height difference with the lift which is why it is now noticeable.

My truck has always been a little less than 1/2" higher on the left front. I've tried correcting it with new springs but it remains the same. I'm guessing my problem is actually in the rear.

My truck sits 1" lower on the drivers side. I started a thread about this a while ago and a lot of members told me they had the same problem and that all PSD's did this.

Well thats not cool. Maybe Ill add an extra spacer of some sort on the one side to level her out.

Before you do that I would drive the truck over some bumps for a few days and see if they seat themselves. I've installed alot of springs that either sit crooked or just plain too high overall, and after driving a rough road a few times they've worked themselves in and sat correctly. Sometimes they just torsion load when lowered back down and have to displace that energy and rotate themselves into place.
