3/4 inch lower in driver side rear?

Seems like lately my truck seems to me leaning in the back drivers side. I found the Ford TSB about this and they offer the ford "wedge" to fix it. They want $237 for it though and what Im trying to figure out is if I can just buy a 1 inch billet block for the reat and add it to my existing blocks? Anyone have any experience on this. I would apprecate the help. Thanks

There was a TSB about if from Ford. Ive printed it off and even went to the dealership and looked at the part they say will fix it. Basically looks like a 1 inch block lift with a wedge at the side. They want $237 for it from Ford. What I was reall wanting someone to see if they knew or had fixed this with some other means. I think I should just be able to add another inch block to only the drivers side rear to fix it. Just wanting to see if anyone had any experience with the fixing side of it. But your def right. Its aggravating as hell!

Instead of adding a block to that side, I wonder if you could have a good spring shop re-arch the second to the lowest leaf in that side's leaf pack ( in other words, not the bottom overload spring, but the next one up. ) That way it would give you a balanced truck and not have a weird extra block on one side.

Or, maybe just add air bags to your truck and then just fill one side up a little bit to raise that side just enough.

Mine's a little off on one of the rear sides, too. Don't remember which. It hasn't bothered me much yet. But, if it does, I'll look into having the spring on that side re-arched a little. The extra block on one side seems really hokey to me. I know I'd have to make fun of it on someone else's truck.
