Question???

So I have noticed this before, but for some reason today it stood out ALOT to me. When looking head on at my truck, why is the drivers side so much lower than the passenger?? I do have a full tank of diesel, but I don't believe that it would make THAT huge of a difference. I measured today and the drivers side was about 2 1/4" lower than the pass side. The drivers side coil spring seems to have a little curver or flex to it as well, while the pass side is pretty straight up and down. 05 CC, 10" Fabtech lift with 38" Toyos. Dual Fox shocks up front (for now). Any other ideas?? I will try to get a pic of it.

And yes I know there is something leaking... Just happened yesterday, it is the power steering line leaking...Gonna get it fixed the next few days... Also Spring has JUST arrived here in Minnesota, so once again I will be painting the whole underbody and suspension black to get rid of that disgusting rust look... Just some FYI

Maybe a bad coil? If you were to switch them that would let you know for sure but it would be labor intensive..... Might call the lift company and ask them... Might be willing to replace the coil for you

They are Fabtech coils... Not sure if they would warranty them or not I guess, they are about 3 years old...
