2008 wrecked f250 all fixed now!

This is my first diesel and have had it around 10 months now but just now got around to posting about it. It's a 2008 f250 supercab fx4. Picked it up real cheap because it was wrecked and have been working on it getting it all fixed. It supposably has a 4 inch lift and have no way of telling. Here are some pictures of before2008 wrecked f250 all fixed now!-uploadfromtaptalk1355335275784.jpg2008 wrecked f250 all fixed now!-uploadfromtaptalk1355335310077.jpg2008 wrecked f250 all fixed now!-uploadfromtaptalk1355335341862.jpg

But now that I have it all finished the drivers side sits a couple inches lower than the passenger in the front any ideas of why? Busted shock, weak spring?

Did you ever get the frame checked? It does appear the cab to bed gap is bigger on the driver side.

Nice looking pickup now that its put back together. Could you take a front end shot? How many inches are we talking? The fuel tank on the drivers side will make it lean a bit when full of fuel, and it looks worst on short beds because of the short frame, but ive never noticed it to much from the front of the truck. You could have a weak spring on that side, or maybe the spring was damaged in the wreck? But I agree with strokin07, your bed gap looks different from side to side which might mean a bent frame?

Looks level to me. Im guessing its just a full tank of fuel that gives it a lean.

Come on guys. He says it is two inches lower on the drivers side. Due to a full fuel tank? I doubt it. Not two inches. I have an extended cab as well and mine isn't two inches lower on the drivers side when I fill it. For that much of a difference there is an issue with the suspension or frame.

That's what im saying. That's why I asked if he had the frame checked. If the frame checks out then look at springs or vice versa
