Don't panic just yet. It's much more likely that you have the infamous "Super Duty Lean". These trucks use OEM springs constructed in Mexico, and that combined with the fact that the left hand side of these trucks is heavier, causes the springs on the left to sag differentially. The left side of the truck has the steering box and column, brake master cylinder and hydro boost, the driver, the fuel tank, and all of the wires and hoses going to the rear of the truck. This causes them to lean to the left. Luckily, coil springs are pretty cheap for these trucks. So instead of putting a leveling spacer on your coils, just order leveling coils and you will solve both issues at once. Just be sure to get a good quality spring that's made with American steel.
